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

After having lived and worked in several different countries and cities (Netherlands, Australia, Canada and USA), I have been located in Meridian, Idaho near Boise, Idaho since late 2000 and most often work as a Consultant or sub-contractor either through my own company: Tech-Relief LLC (founded in 2000) or working through other local Consulting companies.  I have worked as an employee for companies like URS, Hilton International and others as a Software Developer and I.T. Manager in the past; however Boise is a small city and good employmeny opportunities are difficult to come by.  I am now semi-retired, however, I am available to take on short term, long term or even part-time projects as a Software Developer, Software Engineer, Project Manager, Software Architect or as an Enterprise Architect.  With over 30 years experience I can usually be more than useful on any team or project.

I am always open to opportunities, so feel free to contact me if you have a need for an experienced software developer or architect.  I can work locally on-site but I also have access to a software development lab with workstations and servers making it possible to take on any remote development work successfully.
