Visual Studio is my every day environment and has been since 1999 (Visual Interdev), I've been with Dot NET since the first framework in 2002 and I LOVE working with it. Whilst VB has been my main language, I've worked with good architecture and design patterns for a while so transitioning to C# is a natural progression for me
I've worked with Microsoft SQL Server since SQL 7, creating and managing databases containing millions of records for the transport industry (70,000 new event transactions per day). I have used SSIS, SSRS and other BI tools to provide data and mining to Directors as an employee and as a consultant.
Most of my work has been in the transport industry (smart card systems) and this grew into card printing for The Card Project who provide bespoke issuance systems. I am interested in social media marketing and dynamic imagery thanks to the years working on print and design software, see My Work section or get more detailed information at my technical blog
