Educated in Derbyshire and having since lived in Nottinghamshire, Surrey, West Sussex, Hampshire, Berkshire and Iowa, I have finally settled on Buckinghamshire as my place of abode. For the moment.
With a checkered history which involves both scalpels and commercial airliners, it was always understood that I'd therefore eventually become a software tester.
And so after years of testing everything from air traffic control tools, through millennium bug hunting to banking and logistic tools, I've finally ended up looking at doing the previously unthinkable i.e. actually TESTING web applications.
