About Me and DNN

I am an accomplished professional with years of experience in the IT sector since 1988.  Highly experienced in user interaction design, web design, software engineering, software analysis and design, problem solving and user relations. I have demonstrates leadership in; resource and project management. I consider myself with an in-depth understanding of Microsoft development tools. I am results-oriented and thrive in innovative, creative, challenging, fast-paced workplace.

I have spent more than a decade managing dynamic, complicated solutions for clients, providing guidance and understanding.  His skills in user interaction design are goal directed which enables him to keep the client and the user in focus and happy.  When organisations ask him for help, he immediately starts working to clarify their goals, and then tailors an engagement to meet their needs.

I first joined VNU Publitec as an applications developer in June 1999 when I moved to the Netherlands from London in the United Kingdom.  I was over qualified for the role but took it knowing that with in no time I would prove my skills and show my work.  Within 6 months I was promoted to a Technical Project Leader for a large project, designing and developing a front office sales force automation system.

I have demonstrated leadership skills by managing over 25 software developers; and was awarded the "Award of Excellence" by VNU Publitec.

As a technical architect for VNU Publitec, I provided an interoperability layer for Java J2EE and Visual Basic 6.  The task was challenging as it had to pave the way for the future upgrade of Visual Basic 6 components to VB.NET with the least amount of rework.

I also showed British Telecoms International Settlements that office automation of mundane task can improve on product quality.  This was evident with a settlement and reminder system I created which captured some £105 million of unclaimed settlements.

I first came in contact with DotNetNuke® long before the name itself.  .NET lead me to ASP.NET which then lead me to the IBuySpy web project.  At the time I thought this rocks, then I discovered IBuySpyWorkshop later to be renamed DotNetNuke and I have never looked back.

I am constantly designing and developing new modules for DotNetNuke®, giving even more added functionality to what is already in the box.  Some can be found on my site I am also the founder of the Netherlands and European DotNetNuke® user groups and worked closely with Microsoft to achieve this. 

Watching the project grow from strength to strength really gives me the want; to promote, to use and to develop with DotNetNuke®, and if your reading this, I guess you're feel the same ;)
