I was born in NW England in 1993. I have been programming since I was little (about 15 years), and as a professional software and web developer since 2011. When I was a kid I wanted to be an inventor like Wallace and programming has helped me fulfill that dream.
I started programming in the weird twilight age of the early 00s; after the golden era of the BASIC home microcomputer, and before the convenience of ADSL, Python, and the Raspberry Pi. It was a drag and you had to really want it!
As such, I got started in 2002 with VBA (in PowerPoint) without the web or so much as a book. Later my big brother got me a copy of VB6, which I used to make and sell games for my friends through high school.
I work for Village Software in Liverpool, where I work on and manage .Net enterprise solutions, mostly implemented as ASP.Net MVC web apps in C#. In my commuting time, I am currently getting into Jekyll and learning more about reusable design and software architecture.
Let's have fun out there! Cheers,
