Service Description

Company background

I solve problems. Having to use brute force frustrates me: there is always a quicker and more elegant solution to a problem. Finding it is my job. Solving your problems elegantly and quickly saves you time and money.

I also communicate. I write clearly, elegantly and accurately. I inform and entertain.

I have excellent computer skills. MS Office as standard, with fluency in LaTeX and competence in Matlab, LabVIEW and Inkscape for document design and layout, graphical design and data crunching.
