Whats to say... well I'm a geek, I've always been a geek and I'll always be a geek.

I love writing software and tinkering with computer related stuff in general.

I run my own I.T consultancy company called "Digital Solutions Computer Software UK", I'm a Pluralsight author and the UK & Europe group manager for Lidnug (One of the largest .NET related user groups on the Linked-In network)

I'm a Microsoft Community Leader, presenter & lecturer of development related topics, oh and a Write a few computer books here and there for things like the Syncfusion Succinctly range.

I work across Linux, Unix, Windows and use lots of different languages in order to ply my trade, I've been working in I.T now for the best part of 30 years and will probably be here for at least another 30.
