My Story

    I am a young, self-taught programmer and full-time web developer. After completing an 18-month long apprenticeship at an awesome small marketing company I was lucky enough to be taken on full time whilst I study for a foundation degree with the Open University.

    Over the past 18 months, I have taught myself how to code in PHP, Python, JavaScript and some C#. I mostly code my web apps in PHP, it being the language I am most familiar with and, in my experience, the easiest to develop with.

    Pretty much all my time is devoted to programming in some way. During the day, I create and maintain websites for a whole range of different clients, and in my free time, I like to create my own web apps to combat everyday problems and make life that little bit easier for the world.
