Ivan's profile photo

I have over 20 years of hands-on experience as a software developer, interface designer, systems analyst and business consultant. I possess strong skills in a number of development, markup and presentation languages, including PHP, Javascript, HTML, CSS, Visual Basic, VBS, C, C++, Perl, Shell, AWK, and SQL.

I also have extensive and real world business experience with number of database management systems, including MYSQL, Postgress, Oracle, SQL Server, Ingress, Access, Universe, and even Pick.

I'm an outspoken advocate of simple computer interface usability, web standards-driven and accessible design, and I strongly believe that the best computer systems are those which put the user in charge.

I hold a Graduate Diploma of Business Information Technology from Swinburne University, and I'm a member of the Association of Web Design Professionals and the Web Standards Group.

In my spare time, I'm into photography, fishing, cricket, tennis, music from the 70s, cooking, good wine, and I apparently know "way too much" about movies. From time to time, I help charities and individuals on Grassroots. If you're interested to know more about my skills and experience, download my resume.
