Location Auckland, New Zealand
Introduction I currently work for a small independant software development company in New Zealand, which specialises in software for retailers. My offical job title is Lead Developer for Ontempo Store, a next generation Point-Of-Sale system for retailers. It's a very exciting product, built entirely using Microsoft .NET 2.0/Visual Studio 2005 and Microsoft Sql Server Express.

My previous jobs include Project Manager/Lead Developer for Plusfactor Software (now Plusfactor Solutions). During this time I was entered into the 2001-2002 edition of the "Who's Who of Professional Management".

I have been programming commercially for about 8 years (as of 2006) and much longer for pleasure.

I have recently become a Microsoft Certified Professional, Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist with expertise in Windows Forms development, and a Microsoft Windows Professional Developer (Windows Developer).
