I grew up in Whakatane, a small town in New Zealand. I had always been interested in computers and enjoyed tinkering with them. I taught myself QBasic by trying to replicate the starfield screensaver in Windows. Although I enjoyed learning things by myself I found out that having a formal education is an important step in getting a proper job. So I studied a Bachelor of Information Sciences at Massey University in Palmerston North, there I found the programming assignments and exams quite easy, however a bit fustrating that the software developed would never go to good use.
My first professional job was for Koorb Consulting in Auckland. There was a great team that worked well together and I was able to learn all about Dynamics AX.
Since then I have moved to Melbourne, Australia to take on various contract roles.
