Hi there, welcome to my new blog / portfolio / space on the internet! I'm hoping to blog quite regularly about technology. Specifically web development on the Microsoft stack, standards, HTML5, great design, great UX, the cloud, and more.

Also I might throw in some other technology posts, mainly about Apple. Even though I love developing on the Microsoft Stack, I'm also an avid Apple user. I balance technology, I use the best device/platform/solution I believe will get my job done, instead of been a fanboy concentrating on a specific device/platform/company. ;-)

I might throw in some sporting blogs too, I follow South Melbourne FC, Arsenal and Hawthorn FC.
