The guru of



I'm an IT professional with over 20 years experience in commercial software development and project management, working for organisations ranging from one-man-bands to large multinationals.

I'm just starting out on Guru and am keen to build up a good reputation.

I'm customer-focused, conscientious and keen to help.

I'm skilled in a range of development platforms and technologies, including:

Java, J2EE, JSP, Apache SOLR, C#, C++, ASP.NET, HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, Ajax, Linux sysadmin, Linux bash and Windows scripting, Access, Excel, VBA, VB, XML, XSLT, XSD, RelaxNG, XPath, XQuery, XACML, XML databases (Exist, Oracle Berkeley DB XML), XForms, OrbeonForms, SQL, SQL Server, MySQL, PostGresql, IBM DB2, AS400, RDF, semantic web technologies, SPARQL, TQL, Assembly Language

I usually develop on a virtual server platform with the objective of closely matching the client's software environment to avoid any platform incompatibility issues.

Outside of work I'm a keen musician, singing with a local choir, playing accordion with a local group of musicians and playing guitar and concertina at a local folk club. I also enjoy walking and the great outdoors.
