I'm an accomplished software architect and developer with 17 years commercial experience. Right now I'm Lead Developer on a consumer demand modelling system, in use by major retail and gas multinationals.

I've a huge amount of experience in technologies old and new, and can apply myself to anything. Lately I've been designing and developing for MS platforms with .NET, but some of the things I know about COM+ could make Don Box blush (maybe!).

I understand the importance of good design in software. Rest assured any coding I do will be accompanied by a design overview, clear comments and no nasty bugs.

I'm motivated, innovative and efficient; and not just at coding! Feel free to leverage my architecture / design expertise too.
