About Me

My Background

2013-01-26_028-ed
My love of programming began with a Commodore 64, programming in BASIC and in 6510 machine code. My work in Telstra processing traffic data satisfied my programming needs but moving on with promotions I drifted away from software development opportunities. After a long career in telecommunications it was time for a change to return to what I enjoy.

To update my skills I completed the Advanced Diploma of IT (Software and Process Improvement). I am seeking a role where I can improve business processes and build creative user friendly websites and applications that will enhance the customer experience and generate better returns for my employer.

Please feel free to browse my work. As I complete more projects these will be added to the site.

If you would like me to help with your next project please drop me a line using the information in the Contact page.
