Full Biography

I work for MySQL AB's Documentation Team. My duties include keeping the MySQL Reference Manual current, as well as preparing specialised documentation for the company's licensees and support customers. I also sometimes answer questions on the MySQL mailing lists and user forums.

I also work with PHP, JavaScript, Python, HTML, XHTML, CSS, ASP/JScript/VBScript (prefer JScript), XML, DOM, some XSLT.

I've co-authored several books on PHP, MySQL and JavaScript/DOM for Wrox Press and glasshaus. I most recently contributed to PHP 5 Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach. Here's the complete list:
