I spent 5 years working as an accounts clerk in UK, after completing 'O' levels.
I left that job to follow additional qualifications, initially 4 'A' levels, followed by a Combined Honours degree in Maths and Th. Physics.
I spent 8 years working as a software engineer in UK, prior to migrating in 1998 to New Zealand, where I spent 6 years initially working for Telecom, then EDS doing Telecom work. During this time I completed a Maths degree with high honours and that led to an MSc, recently completed.
In 1993 I got married and started a family in 1997.
I have a strong background in C / C++ in a UNIX environment but recently I have been strengthening my skills in the Windows WinAPI environment, under the XP OS.
