About

I'm a software developer with an interest in front-end web development


From a young age I have always had an interest in all sorts of geeky things - video games, sci fi, board games - you name it! So when I first learned to code in University it was a natural fit. Since then I have become a well rounded programmer, with a strong foundation in the low level concepts of C and assembly to the more managed worlds of C# and Java.

Lately I have taken an greater interest in web design, as I enjoy being challenged and learning new things, and I like that I can apply my technical knowledge while allowing my creativity to flow.
