I have been working in ICT for over 20 years covering a wide range of Administration, Systems and development projects.
My experience extends from basic 1st - 3rd line support of 3rd party applications, AD Domain administration and migration to Development in c# asp.net and Frontend development. I am currently working as a frontend developer for our external web sites. My team and I have just completed an on-line trading infrastructure for external clients which has won a number of awards called Charles Stanley Direct. My extended experience and knowledge in ICT and network infrastructure has given my taste for knowledge an additional boost in my development skills. This has helped me to be able to think more about network communications in building the most dynamic web sites keeping the load cycle and response times to a minimal.
Please see my CV below for further details of my extensive experience.
