Development Manager and ex-MS Developer based on Scotland. Still passably competent with SQL and VBA and dream of one day doing more programming but for now mainly interested in best practice, management and methodology type things.

When I'm not working I spend my time doting on my daughters and/or trying to catch up on the sleep they've deprived me of.
