Professional   I am a computer professional with some twenty years experience in
Profile        Open Systems. I have had considerable experience in all types of
               revenue earning computer projects for a number of Blue Chip
               companies both home and abroad. My clients have included Airsys
               ATM (Siemens/Thomson CF now Thales ATM) Reuters, The NHS,
               The Royal Mint, ICL, Siemens Nixdorf, Thorn, Cubic, Nedlloyd
               (Rotterdam), Johnson & Johnson (Belgium) and Nuon ICT

               The projects in which I have played an important and sometimes
               critical role have included:

                  Lantau Airport Light Railway Transit System - Hong Kong.
                  Kuala Lumpur Light Railway System – Malaysia
                  Manchester Light Railway system.
                  Commissioning of two Air Traffic Control systems – LFV Sweden.
                  Shipping System – Nedlloyd BV. The Netherlands.
                  Ministry of employment – Madrid, Spain.
                  Operator emergency services – British Telecom.
                  Colt Telecom – HP Openview network Monitoring system.
                  Nuon ICT Amsterdam – Network head office redesign.
                  Customer and Internet line monitoring system.

               With some twelve years experience as the technical director of my
               own company and ten years of contracting I am able to undertake all
               aspects of a major project including feasibility studies, system design
               and    implementation    including System          specifications and
               programming. I have a very broad understanding of all types open
               systems and the platforms on which they run. I have also followed
               formal project management courses (International Computers

               I possess considerable skills in network design and programming and
               have a successful track record producing mission and safety critical
               systems in this area and for that reason I have chosen to specialise in
               this particular field.

               More recently I have become more involved with the testing and
               qualification of networked systems in the light of increasing
               regulations in this area. I have good documentation skills in particular
               test protocols and procedures.

               I operate through reputable agencies specialising in the supply of
               professionals in Information Technology to business and industry.
