Earthed Solution's director Ian J. Finlay studied Electrical Engineering with Honors at the University of NSW, Randwick Sydney, Australia.  

Ian has a strong background as a project closer and trouble shooter bringing debugging expertise after a career of 20+ years in Engineering related real-time software development from MS-DOS days through every flavor of Windows to date. 

Having worked extensively on high profile projects in both embedded and Windows development projects.  

Automation Safety, and reliability of software and firmware is extremely important,

"...get it done right the first time. ..."

Always ready to pick up new Software languages and keen to work on unique engineering challenges such as James Cameron's DEEPSEA CHALLENGER.  

Often projects demand intense 90+hour weeks for long periods, but bring great satisfaction on closure.

"If I don't know how to do something, I'll find out how, with a bulldogged determination - I never give up."

Ian has a great understanding of Graphic User Interface usability and design, and experience with machine HMI's, Windows Application Design and Embedded device LCD's across many industry sectors.

With a depth of experience in both the embedded and Windows forms space and more recently cloud and intranet based telemetry solutions with the Internet of Things.

I'm always on the look out for something new and challenging
