I have been building websites since 1996 and cofounded WebAppz in 1997. There we developed our own CMS until discovering Joomla! during the beta release phase of 1.5. Since then Joomla has become our CMS of choice.

Having evaluated a wide range of CMS engines, I selected Joomla! and introduced it to our web development company. It is now the only CMS we work with. Having attended a number of Joomla! events and contributed to the forums I volunteered to help out with the extensions directory. Initially assisting with reviews and then with listings, I now manage the reviews section. I have presented at a number of conferences including JandBeyond and I hope helped some great people to maintain and extend a superb CMS.
