Thanks For Dropping By

Sites I have Designed

I worked for ten years as a clinical scientist in a medium sized hopital. While working in the lab, I developed a strong interest in programming and database development. I developed a couple of Microsoft Access applications in my spare time and was involved with the implementation of the Laboratory Information System (LIS).

For the last eight years I have worked in the IT department interfacing the laboratory instruments directly to the LIS.

I'm trying to learn everything I can about PHP, MySQL, SPRY(AJAX) CSS and Dreamweaver. I'm amazed at the kind of things that can be done with these applications.

Familiarity breeds contempt — and children.
