Born on 20th August 1954 in the Netherlands.

Studied Mathematics at Rijks University Leiden, Nederland. In those days, Single Computers occupied entire buildings, and the time delay between submitting a coding error and getting an error message was typically 7 days.(Punchcards in Pigeonholes etc). Seeing that Computers was NOT the future,Qualified in geometry there.

I Moved to Ireland in 1980. Taught myself Machine Language programming in the early 80's on a Commodore 64, by writing an assembler and monitor for same. This was essentially my first grounding in Computer Science.

All these were hobbies. My Main Employment in Ireland was Consulting Engineering, Structural, Mechanical and Electrical,for a period of 20 years.
Now Semi Retired from Engineering ( there are easier ways to make a living) I Co-Own with my Partner Deirdre a small chain of Laundrettes. The software I write is nearly exclusively for the management of these Several Businesses.
