About me

After working in the electrical sector for a few years and feeling my potential was not being maximised, I decided it was time for me to take the leap and pursue my dream career in the software industry. I've never looked back!
From the first ‘Hello world’ I was totally hooked on what computers could do if you learnt to write their language and understand their thinking.

Today, I’m extremely passionate about what I do and the more I learn about it the more I enjoy it. This is why I often find myself researching new technologies or building projects in my spare time.
