History


I originate from Canada. I was a computer programmer working for many years for the mining industry in the far north of Canada. I developed a full suite of accounting software packages including accounts payable, inventory, maintenance scheduling, land claims management, concentrate tracking systems, financial reports, payrolls, and a purchasing management system for the mining industry which were installed across Canada, the United States, New Zealand and Australia. The mining industry was slowing down in Canada, and I was given the opportunity to work for one of my clients full time in Australia. I immigrated to Australia in the 1990s, and have been here ever since.

Over the last 10 years, I have worked in accounting firms, the last three years running my own bookkeeping practice. Clients include medical practices, fast food restaurants, import/export businesses, and retail businesses.

My dream has always been to support both accounting businesses and businesses using accounting packages, and complimentary software tools. Most businesses I have worked with use the same tools that were developed 40 years ago. Whilst the accounting software has improved, but not much else has been done. Newer tools for the business world are available that complement your existing software and they are invaluable! Let me help you make your jobs much easier, while at the same time improve your compliance issues, improve your customer support, improve their experience, and make your customers happy.

My clients include medical practices, fast food restaurants, import/export businesses, and retail businesses.
