ABOUT ME

I started building web pages for people around 15 years ago when I was 18, while studying design. I quickly became fascinated with with the possibilities the web presented, and so I decided to learn to code, at first it was a way to express myself artistically; I learnt Processing.org and Actionscript, modifying scripts I had found online. I learnt how to use maths to animate vectors. This was the beginning of a huge adventure into my life as a digital creative. Along my journey to becoming a senior rails developer, I learnt the basics of Java, PHP, and Python. By this point I had long ago moved on from designing and building mere pages, I was building apps for clients using PHP CMSs and frameworks like Wordpress and Silverstripe. These tools never did exactly what I wanted them to do, so I decided to find a way to build my own CMS, which was when I discovered Ruby and Ruby on Rails. For the last five years I have been completely hooked on Ruby. I love building complete products for clients, and I love the freedom that Rails gives me to build things exactly to spec. I am someone who takes pride in delivering well-crafted and high-quality products.
