I'm currently 26, I've got a 3 year old daughter and she is my passion for success. I've always been a well driven individual and always aimed for the highest possible standard in my work. Since I was young I've always been good with technology and when I reached secondary school I was immediately enrolled in Intermediate 2 computing where I started developing. I didn't always plan on being a developer, I initially wanted to be a pyrotechnician and having went through some problems and missing some chemistry work at school I then went to my fallback of computing. I went through a stage of wanting to be a games developer / creator to which I then discovered I found more drive towards the development side when I realised I wasn't very creative in the respect of coming up with stuff from scratch. This then lead me to get a diploma in Software Engineering and ultimately shaped me into the roles I've worked, having both a Higher National Certificate and a Diploma I've got a vast knowledge around the entirety of computing. When I was around 14-17 I spent a lot of time playing games and along the way I learned a good amount of knowledge in software such as: Cinema 4D, Sony Vegas Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop and also dabbled with other 3D software such as Autodesk 3DS Max. I'm currently living and working in Central Scotland, you can see a more specific location over on the contact page as to what area I'm from.
I currently work for a company called SilverBullet, within the company I am a key contributor to the development lifecycle and in time I think I will be a key contributor to the devops of the application. The application itself is a automotive eCommerce platform to allow the motor trade industry to sell online! The application is built in Laravel back end, makes use of VueJS, jQuery and Blade for the front-end. In time the plan is to get this aligned with todays industry and have a totally separate front end from backend and they will integrate with one another through the use of an API.
