DOWNLOAD MY CV
Although I am kept busy, I am always keen and interested in being involved in new projects.
Atari ST – Web Development
Part of my personal life is dedicated to the Atari ST community. A computer still alive in one form or another, with a vibrant and active community. Part of my involvement in this community is releasing programs that push and test the computer’s hardware. Working with our group’s designer and graphics artist, we put together a digital home for our group, originally formed in 1992!
ANPR – Software Development
I was heavily involved in a pioneering, award winning project that targeted motorists with advertising on a large outdoor screen while they waited at a set of traffic lights, developed in Scala with additional backend scripts. This was live over multiple locations.
