                                                        A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I was first introduced to HTML in January 2004, a few months later i was introduced to ASP - Knowing literally the bare essentials, I was in desperate need of somewhere to learn, somewhere that had real people at the other end, that were willing to take the time to explain the answer to me. And then I found Experts-Exchange!  Without EE i would not be where I am today!

                                                        CODING EXPERIENCE

ASP ~ ADO ~ VbScript  ~ JavaScript ~ VB6 ~ HTML ~ XML ~ XSD ~ XSLT
C# ~ VB.net ~ ASP.net ~ VS ~ SourceSafe ~ TFS ~ .Net Frameworks
MS SQL Server ~ NUnit ~ TDD ~ Agile

                                                          HOW I FOUND EE!

Google!

                                                            PRIVATE WORK

Out of the question, i barely have enough time to eat!
