Introduction

Hello and welcome to my homepage!

As an I.T. and software professional for fifteen years I have filled many roles from desktop, server and network management to enterprise software and consulting. My professional experience is largely with Microsoft platforms supporting and developing tools powered by Microsoft SQL Server and the .NET Framework. I have extensive expirence in SQL Server programming, ETL interfacing and report design using SQL Server Reporting Services and PowerBi. I am also experienced in deploying and administering scripting and web development solutions using Linux, MySQL, Perl, PHP, Python and .NET Core.

Have worked with numerous customers primarily in the energy and commodity industry deploying software tools to support commoidity and energy trading + risk management. Also have expirence in supply chain optimization and operational decision support in process manufacturing.

Over the years I have developed a number of tools which can be used for a variety of purposes. Some of those are available on my GitHub and Bitbucket pages (links below). I also work with web development and manage web properties.

Have a look around.
