For all those curious folks out there that want to get ‘behind the blog’.

I’m the man behind this site… what you see here is my creation from the site design, through the writing, and photographs.

I like to do a bit of everything from time to time but my driving force is innovation and I’m something of a perfectionist – which, let me tell you, is a painful thing to be in web development. Of course that is why I prefer working on desktop software :)

I’m recently worked in the Netherlands as a Freelance Software Design Consultant. You can find my old business details at, but now I’m back to working full time at Optiver as a GUI Software Developer working on Trading Tools. Lots of new stuff to learn about trading and market making which is keeping me busy.

Earlier on I had the pleasure of working for Avantium, Crystallics, and BatchCAD. Of the latter very few direct references remain but I did find this release article.

If you want to know more you can find me on Facebook, Linked-In and Twitter.

Site Architecture

Built on top of the awesome WordPress engine this site uses a custom theme built from the ground up by yours truely.

It makes use of xhtml, css, and javascript to deliver a minimal but functional interface.

Hosted by who have over the years offered me tremendous value and customer support second to none.

The back end is Linux, Apache, and MySQL… yes… we all know how bad MySQL is reputed to be, except it is still fit for purpose and it excels at delivering web content.
