About

I have been coding for the majority of my adult life, and have experienced doing so in varied enviroments and to very different goals.

It started out in my childhood, I had always been facinated by technology and learning how it all worked, and by my teenage years I was managing servers and custom programing a veriety of web based systems, from blogs and forums, to online games. This facination became a hobby then a passion, and has moulded my career as a Web Application Developer.

Currently I work for a Leading Motor Finance broker working on projects ranging from internal management systems to front end competative services.
