Douglas J Steele has been working with computers, both mainframe and PC, for almost 40 years. (Yes, he did use punch cards in the beginning!) For more than 30 years, Doug worked for a large international oil company. Databases and data modeling was a focus for most of that time, although he also used SCCM OSD to roll Windows 7 out to about 100,000 desktops world wide.
Doug has authored numerous articles on Access and has been recognized by Microsoft as an MVP (Most Valuable Professional) for more than 11 years.
He holds a Master's degree in Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada), where his research centred on designing user interfaces for non-traditional computer users. (Of course, this was in the late '70s, so few people were traditional computer users at the time!). This research stemmed from his background in music (he holds an Associateship in Piano Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto).
