ABOUT ME

I am a technically skilled developer and have worked on many enterprise level applications in my various roles, and in doing so have learnt a lot about framework development and architecture. I have put my theory to practice recently, and wrote an entire framework for rapid application development including all UI, advanced menu systems, data access, TCP/IP, and multithreading (background workers, background data caching). I am also highly experienced with MS SQL in database design, programming, and optimisation.
