An (old) portrait of the artist

I’m a general IT solutions wrangler. I’m forty six years old, have an adorable fiancée, three splendid sons and two hilarious greyhounds. I like music, food, coffee and beer.

This utter ego-fest has been around for over seventeen years (that’s “forever” in internet terms), and is a weblog for developer / consultant types, predominantly. I hope to reboot the site when time allows, as it has been somewhat fallow of late: a key focus at the moment is my company’s product, LDC Via, which you should definitely check out, especially if you’re running old Notes / Domino systems that need retiring. IN addition, we have a full replacement for your old IBM Quickr instances (including data migration), and we can work with things like IBM Connections, Microsoft Sharepoint, IBM Domino.Doc (!) and more.

If you’re interested in this site and how it’s put together, you can read more here.

I am often available for hire: check out my work page for more details.


I’m a software architect / developer / general IT wrangler specialising in web, mobile web and middleware using things like node.js, Java, C#, PHP, HTML5 and more.

Best described as a simpleton, but kindly. You can read more here.
