I've always been around computers, even from an early age – everything from the BBC Micro and RM Nimbus through to mainframes. I love delving into the insides of computers – building them from parts, fixing and repairing, upgrading and cleaning. I have been building and upgrading my own computers since 1998 and have a lot of hands on experience with computer hardware. I love finding out what makes them tick and how to get the most out of them.
Having graduated from the University of Plymouth with an HND in Software Engineering, I started employment at Alexandra plc where I helped run the helpdesk and look after the companies AS400 system. After four years I moved into the programming department where I wrote the Alexandra retail website along with many other projects. During my time at Alexandra I formalised my software design skills when I became a Microsoft Certified Application Developer and Microsoft Certified Professional.
When Alexandra went into administration during 2010 I started taking on small freelance opportunities, and when I was made redundant at the end of 2011 I chose to give freelancing a try full time. I haven't looked back since and now I relish the challenge that each new project brings.
I have a strong work ethic and I'm committed to excellence in everything I do. I strive to deliver the highest quality product possible on time and on budget and I take personal responsibility for everything I do.
