My name is Paul Farrow. I was born on March 5th 1970, so that makes me ….. yes ancient.
Young Farrow Pre 1975
I was brought up in Cobham, Surrey in England, and attended all three of the schools in Cobham. I also attended Trinity (no longer called that) in Esher thanks to the government merging three schools in the area together.
My parents gave me my first computer when I was 11, it was a Sinclair ZX81. Little did they know what they were starting.
I have been working in IT as a programmer since 1988, after graduating from Brooklands Technical college, Weybridge in Surrey. Initially worked for Enterprise Air Time systems in Thames Ditton.
Buff and I – May 2009
In 1994 I started my own company Farrow Computing Limited and engaged with various blue chip clients.
I met Buff in 2008 and applied for a visa to come to the USA in 2009 which was granted in 2010. I closed my company in March of 2010 so that I could emigrate. I emigrated to South Carolina, USA and married Buff on St Georges Day of that year. We have two children Cooper and Olivia.
My green card was granted in September 2010 at which time I started employment with Global Emergency Resources and I am currently working for them as the principal software engineer using the .NET toolset.
