Bio

I am originally from London and now live in Seattle, Washington USA.

I started as a programmer in 1981, working on the Xerox 820, having gotten my start on the Sinclair ZX-81. Since then, I have worked on staff and contract for companies such as General Electric, The International Stock Exchange, Legal & General Insurance Company, Barclays de Zoete Wedd and Abbey National Bank.

I started my career using the BASIC programming language then moved on to C and Assembly Language. Since those heady days, I have learned and developed projects in Delphi, C# + .NET, HTML, JavaScript, ColdFusion, CFScript, PHP, SQL and a few others. As for operating systems, I started with CP/M and DOS. I have used every Microsoft operating system since then.

In June of 1990, I was elected as a Fellow of the Institution of Analysts and Programmers.

WordPress Origin Story

First started using WordPress in 2006. Since then, I have developed many websites with it. Boy, has it changed since the early days, and for the better I might add. Always grateful to the WordPress Team for the work they have done, and continue to do.
