The Technology used by the Internet was Born around the same time as I, this makes therefore sense when you see what I can do with it. I personally wasn’t involved in using it before 1996 (when I was 30). A lot has changed in the since that day.
Between 1998 and 2012, I have worked as a Design Engineer for Raytheon Systems, created, implemented and produced a in house CAE library management system from scratch (with Perl over a web interface), created several Businesses. I also worked as a translation Contractor for an Hydraulics Engineering Firm in Loanhead near Edinburgh.
From 2012 to 2018 I lived in a Farm in Central Scotland located near Stirling, Farm works and other activities was my life, like running a web server, dabbing into web development (for myself and my clients). As well as looking after my horses, chickens ducks and dogs.
Around that time I started working as a full time Handyman
As the sole employee of my own Company, this business has flourished into a very well established business with no signs of going out of business any time soon.
Since 2018, my wife and I have moved out of the horse business and concentrated on renovating our new home, a typical 1850’s Scottish cottage located in Crieff in Perthshire, she breeds dogs and I am still a very successful handyman in the central Scotland region.
Areas of expertise
Website engineering is one of them, I use the Perl language together with PHP for most of my web applications, all the sites I create are 100% hand coded bearing in mind the web compliance and the dreadful headaches that Internet Explorer created (thanking God this is useless browser is now defunct!). I am also a proficient French/English translator as well as an excellent bookkeeper.
My current favourite activities are joinery and general management of my own businesses, customers are my main source of revenues through the handyman business and maintaining excellent service is key to any successful businesses.
I also enjoy very much sitting in my garden admiring the birds and my dogs playing on the lawn.
