Full Biography

I have been writing software for more than 13 years and have always tried to stay ahead of the pack by keeping up with the latest in technology. Apart from a passion for technology, I am passionate about imparting whatever it is that I learn. I have authored two books on C# and have written numerous blog posts and contributed to various guest articles on other sites such as BitRebels.

I started my career at a small privately owned company, developing ASP.NET Web Applications using VB.NET and C#. Later I moved to a national company where I did SYSPRO integration and customization using C# as my main language.

After 8 years doing SYSPRO integration, I decided that it was time to move on. I am currently employed by a company in Cape Town, South Africa where I can live out my creativity developing responsive web applications.
