About

I got a Degree in Zool in 1978 and then spent 4 years as a contract handline fisherman on the Great Barrier Reef. I then spent 4 years at the Qld DPI while getting a Computer Science Degree from the Uni of Qld in 1988.

Since then I've worked at CSIRO Division of Information Technology, BHP, and bunch of other companies.

I owned my own development company until I fell over (neck issues) and lost the lot. hpfm was responsible for transforming the membership and management of Surf Lifesaving Australia. We took them from paper and MS Access (327 copies) to online PHP applications loosely coupled with Web Services (started o 2003).

There are over 1,000,000 lines of well structured, proven lines of code in the suite of applications. It is used by 3,000 users across 300+ independent organisations.

I've just started with a Spatial Information Systems Development Company and will be helping them develop a new range of products.

I'm nearly 60 and am happy to share what little I may have picked up along way.

I hope I can help.
