I've been an enthusiastic user of Linux professionally and personally for over 10 years
and am a founder member of the Coventry Linux users Group. I was
originally drawn to Linux because of the way it worked better compared to other
operating systems, the greater reliability and the huge range of applications and tools available.
My experience of Linux led to opportunities with Unix, and I have worked on Sun's Solaris, IBM's AIX and SGI's IRIX in a high performance computing environment.
Also, I have networking experience with Cisco IOS as well as TCP/IP, ethernet and other WAN protocols.
Professionally, I enjoy the problem solving side of my work, it is satisfying to deliver a
solution working either as part of a team or on my own.
I'm motivated by trying to make things work better, either implementing a new solution or improving and existing one.
