First started playing with computers on Research Machines 380Z then BBCs, ZX80/81, Spectrums, Amstrad PCWs, Atari STs, Commodore Amiga and IBM PCs.
Intially I started off commercially as a product and UI designer working on Amiga software (remember Wordworth, Datastore, Organiser and other Digita software) 20 years ago then taught myself C/C++ to help out debugging/fixing projects ... now write my own.
At Digita I managed the Amiga product line including the production of multiple OEM versions translated into many languages for bundling with the European Amiga product.
After the demise of Commodore, and thus our Amiga products, I became responsible for the blosoming PC Taxation product line including managing the UK versions of Microft Money 96/97/98, for which we became development partner, and Microsoft TaxSaver (beating the USA product to market).
