John started his adult career in the role of mechanical engineer.
He continued this career for some 12 years, specialising, mostly, in experimentation and research.
Sometime after his arrival in Australia, from the cold climes of Manchester, UK, John almost accidently stumbled upon a high aptitude for computer logic and programming.
The previous disciplines and problem solving aspects of his engineering career held him in good stead to switch careers.
After hard study and practice he set up his first business ‘Spreadsheet Modelling Systems’, later expanding into higher end Business Intelligence with the new name ‘Smoothstream Business Intelligence’, aimed at the SME business sector.
With new invigorating passion John is now challenging the status quo of business software.
