A bit about me

I’m a true geek at heart, I’m passionate about all things tech. I very much have a can-do attitude and an almost infectious enthusiasm. I like to think ‘outside of the box’, and when that pays off, then there is nothing that makes me more proud.

I find i’m one of these people who, once I have come up with an idea or given a challange, will think about the challange in many different ways; and at many different times. I often joke that I do my best coding when i’m not actually at a computer – such as when going off for a walk… Then once the sollution hits me, i’ll rush back and give it a go.

How I work

If I had to peg myself down, I’m a “Web Developer”, but I’m a bit of a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to development. If a solution is possible, then I’ll find it; I’ll struggle to sleep otherwise. I’m handy when it comes to anything that uses web technologies, whether that’s a Website, Social Media App, Wifi Portal or anything else that uses my skillsets.

I’m also very much an Ideas Man; with the technical knowledge to back it up. I really enjoy finding unusual use for tech too; such as making my Philips Hue lights switch on as I walk in a room; or logging into a timesheet when I’m in my office, due to the location between my phone and my estimote iBeacon.

How I Play

I really love to Food; I like to cook, I like talking to people about food, I like eating food… the whole lot really. If I’m not thinking about my next idea, then I’m generally thinking about my next concotion in the Kitchen. I’m not the greatest of cooks; sometimes when I cook, it results in a microwave-meal instead; but I have a few tried’n’tested recipies that work every time.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C. Clarke

I also love technology, I’m not sure if this should go under ‘play’ or ‘work’, I use it for both really (I think i’m lucky that I have stuff I can put in both places). I geninuely feel astonished by what we can today, and what we can do tomorrow. I don’t really care about Back to the Future style Hoverboards (I have no balance), but I’d quite like some Nikes that can do themselves up.

I got a thing for Dogs too, don’t know why, they just make me happy be to be around.

I’m also a big fan of Social Media, I’m on it quite a bit, in fact, feel free to check me out over on Facebook or Twitter !

Plus; like most people; I also enjoy meeting up with friends, watching films and telly, going to the pictures or a good resturant… & I’ve always got a book the go.
