Currently I (
am) am not looking for work.
You can find the current version of my CV at the other end of this link.
I am based in Dublin.
I have experience in the IT industry since the summer of 1994, initially as a software engineer, but for most of that time I have been designing solutions, as well as either developing them, or leading teams of engineers developing them.
