I am a highly driven individual who is trained and experienced in most aspects of Information Technology. My main focuses of knowledge are in data security, server technology, telecommunications and software development best practices and methodologies.
I've a passion for web and graphics design, and also enjoy creating music, games, digital artwork, computer programming, developing mobile applications and spending time building Internet communities with my online friends.
Should you be looking for support for any software that I've released online - open-source or otherwise - then please visit the dedicated website I have set up for more information, and to submit a request for assistance. Thank you.
Hopefully you'll like this vCard-style, heavily cut-down version of my main website, as I'm sure in this state it is free from the noise you are familiar to on my regular informational pages! I felt that this project would not only be a cool idea (given how this style has really taken off now thanks to Micro$oft!), but also provide something fresh and easy-to-use navigate - enjoy!
