Mark Moxon's Software Archaeology and Writing

Curriculum Vitae

This is my Curriculum Vitae (or resumé if you prefer). I am now semi-retired and am slowly letting my work life drift into the legacy pile. I spend most of my time on my own software archaeology projects, but I'm still working for a couple of days a week, which is the kind of work-life balance that leads to happiness.

I am not looking for more work. Achievement unlocked!

Mark Philip Moxon

I am a highly proficient Software Engineer and Writer, based in the UK, with over 25 years' experience of producing high-quality websites and applications for large companies, including over 20 years' experience managing large CMS installations. I have demonstrable skills in all aspects of website creation, including enterprise-level content management systems, creation of web content, web development and management of large web projects.

To put it another way, I wrote my first program in 1981 and I built my first website in 1994. That's more than 30 years of web experience. Gosh.
