I develop software for a living, specialising in VB.NET and SQL Server. In my "spare" time (what little there is of it!) I enjoy developing games and 3d-graphics-based applications in C++ and C# using DirectX and XNA. The rest of my time is spent being a happy husband and dad.

I have been programming computers for over 25 years, starting all the way back in the late '70s with a Commodore PET. Since then I have used a variety of 8-bit and 16-bit home computers. The Amiga was probably the one I become most familiar and experienced with.

Since then I have spent a lot of time learning my way around Windows on a variety of PCs.

I am currently spending a lot of time developing applications for Microsoft's new Windows Phone 7 platform. I recently finished a book for this platform entitled Windows Phone 7 Game Development (published by Apress).

You can visit my web site at, where all of my software is available for download, as well as all sorts of articles on a range of different subjects that appeal to me.

You can also visit the I Can Games site that I have set up to distribute my games for young children, which can be found at
