Graduated from University about a million years ago with a Masters in Mathematics.
I've been a Database Developer since 1998 (wow - that feels old now).
I love Access, always have - it's my preferred environment and I love working in almost every aspect of it.
(Knowing Jet's strengths but acknowledging its limitations is important - there's a tool for every job, hence most of my work involves SQL Server too).
I'm a database developer / consultant / contractor based towards the north of England, working for companies from the north east (Northumberland/Tyne & Wear) down, through South Yorkshire, to the mythical south of England (though I'm not entirely convinced such a place really does exist) .
I like having different clients - the wider the variety the better! I've done a lot of work in the legal sector though.
Day in, day out I do database development / improvement / consultation, MS Office integration, etc. As well as helping out in online forums, creating examples, co-authoring a book and even writing the occasional article.
Please keep questions at the forum for the benefit of all.

Access Database Design Book:
Intended for the professional and information worker to learn to design the DATABASE STRUCTURE correctly with various business examples. (i.e. it does NOT go deeply into application development!)
