PERSONAL DETAILS


I am a highly skilled ASP.NET C# Web developer and Windows Infrastructure specialist, with over 14 years Financial and
Banking experience and recent Digital Media industry experience. I was contracted for over 13 years consecutively to BNPParibas (4th
largest European bank), during that time I had been given technical lead roles and responsibilities. I have proudly produced highly
acclaimed, business critical enterprise websites and web solutions. I still provide AD-hoc consultancy for them.

Given any IT business design, solution or implementation, I can very effectively dissect and reverse-engineer all aspects of it, from the
infrastructure involved and traffic flows across a network, to the security and load implications, right down to the database schemas
and individual lines of code. I can then efficiently implement, support, enhance, review and develop this solution to meet the
business’s requirements.

I am a committed and determined individual who has pride in his work. I have a keen interest in all web related technologies and
techniques and am always keen to embrace news skills, knowledge and technology. I am a self-motivated and experienced self-
starter, with a “can-do” attitude. I am dedicated, fit, focused, and always improving.

EMPLOYMENT HISTORY


BiteCP - ( WWW.A1GP.COM ) - Contract

I started a contract with BiteCP in January 2009 to work on a project to create a completely new version of the www.A1GP.com

ADO.NET, XML, XHTML, CSS, Flash, Javascript, a proprietary CMS system, 3rd party ASP.NET components and a dedicated hardware
media caching solution. I had to design, build, support and manage a test environment for the development of the websites. Under
my guidance and experience, In-house web designers do design work for the new version of the sites (Photoshop / HTML / Flash). I
then convert these templates and ideas to actual working code (C#, TSQL / Stored Procedures, CSS, XML, Javascript / ActionScript) on
the test environment, before this is tested, approval by the client and then released.

Roles and Responsibilities

Accomplishments

   I coded all the ASP.NET functionality changes, provided bug fixes (for existing code) and made database changes as required
   I recommended and implemented change control, testing procedures, and source control into the project
   I made the test environment secure and available to specific external clients
   I designed a load-balanced version of the current live infrastructure to replace the existing caching solution
   I spotted several bugs on the live site and recommended and implemented fixes for these
