I did my first testing in 1996, when – because I was available – I was volunteered to take on UAT for a call centre management system.

For some reason, testing didn’t stick first time around. Someone must have been trying to tell me something though; a couple of years later I got a sideways move into a system testing role.

This time, I got “the bug”.

Since then I’ve been a tester, automator, test manager, and software testing consultant. I’m currently the Head of Testing for the Treasury function of a major bank. Testing is my passion, and this blog a place to share it.
