His first foray into computers began at age ten with the eight-bit Amstrad CPC; decades later, he's still at it although we've gained a few bits in computer horsepower since then. His flirtation with internet technologies began in the mid-nineties, when he designed and built Ireland's first large-scale e-Commerce system for Allied Irish Banks (AIB), known as First Trust in North America. Programming is a passion for him, and he enjoys high-pressure environments and the company of inspirational and talented colleagues. Since arriving in Canada from Dublin, he worked as an independent software developer and consultant for six years, but has recently joined Avanade Inc as a .NET solution architect and developer. He harbours a ravenous appetite for the command-line and lives in Montreal, Canada with his wife Carly and two cats.
