I have been working in software development since 1998, starting off using C, C++ and Perl, before moving in to Java and latterly C# .Net.

Companies I have worked for as a permanent employee include the BBC and Siemens. Latterly, I have moved in to contracting to give me time to pursue other avenues (as you may have noticed).
