I have been an IT professional for 45 years and have participated in over 40 projects. I have been involved with HP NonStop (Tandem) computer systems for over 35 years. My work areas have been primarily in the areas of Banking, E-Payments and Mobile Telecoms. I have worked as technical project manager, technical application manager, software development team leader, software designer / architect / developer / tester, computer system’s manager and technical writer.
After studying as a mechanical engineer, I moved into the world of IT, spending long periods with both computer hardware manufacture Honeywell and with major software-house Logica (now CGI). For the last 30 years I have worked mainly as an independent consultant. I am native English, but I have now lived permanently in The Netherlands since 1987. I hold both English and Dutch nationalities.
