0101 Welcome to Ed Paay's Personal Web-site.

After my career started in the 1980s I have lived and worked in several different countries and cities (Netherlands, Australia, Canada and USA) where my talents were in demand.  Since late 2000, I have been located in Meridian, Idaho near Boise.  I have held a number of positions in the past as Software Developer / Engineer, I.T. Manager, Software / Enterprise Architect and Software Development Manager.  At times I have also worked as a Consultant or sub-contractor.  Currently,  I consider myself semi-retired, however, I keep up to date with technology and will take on projects as opportunities present them self.  With over 30 years experience I can usually be more than useful on any team or project and can often rescue projects that are out of control or in danger of failure.  I am always open to new opportunities, and can be contacted by email or phone (see contact information below). I can work locally on-site or remote since I have access to a software development lab with workstations and servers making any remote development work possible.
