After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University – BSc Hons Applied Statistics, and from the University of Kent in Canterbury – MSc Statistics, I was fortunate enough to be able to program full-time in SAS and create the blog in 2006. Programming is like a game to me. It’s become a job and a hobby.

After 10 years as an SAS programmer in Germany’s pharmaceutical industry, I founded xxformat GmbH in Cologne, Germany, where I offer online training and on-site training across Europe. Through my consulting activity, you can benefit from my expertise in data quality control, CDISC implementation and outsourcing to India.
