I am a professional computer developer living in London with wife and young son. My day job sees me constructing Business Intelligence systems and managing mission critical data sets for large organisations.
My professional career enabled me to work for a top UK website in a senior role where I got to learn every aspect of the business including search engine optimisation, email list management, conversion rate tracking and a whole lot more. I was fortunate to work with some of the best web professionals here in London, many of whom have become good friends.
I now work in the City in a very different environment but continue to build websites, I am now a hobby blogger.
I have released a number of plugins for the e107 CMS which have had thousands of downloads, I am now bringing some of these ideas over to WordPress and have so far released two free plugins designed to help you run affiliate marketing blogs:
I also run the world leading Samsung Netbook community site and the ever expanding Samsung Wiki. Samsung sold millions of netbooks world wide and SammyNetbook has helped thousands to get the most out of theirs.
And when those projects aren’t keeping me busy, I have a few others slowly growing in the background, so go add us to your RSS reader and follow the latest case studies, product reviews and technical tips.
