I have a murky past – as a spreadsheet warrior. Qualifying as a chartered accountant, I spent two decades before finding how I could program Excel and databases. Escaping into financial IT consulting, I was implementing big accounting systems, OLAP cubes and “business intelligence”. That background happens to be ideal for managing photos and the field of “digital asset management”, so I found myself improving clients’ Lightroom productivity and designing web sites (my own web site has been going since 1997) which integrate efficiently with their workflows. And after using it for 27 years, I do know Photoshop pretty well too.

I have moved all my newer Lightroom content over to my other web site, Lightroom Solutions.
