Dreaming Costs Nothing

About

I am passionate about Software Development. I strive to create well structured, commented and documented code which is easy to maintain even if it means taking extra time to do so. I focus mainly on Web Development and at my current role at Adaptive I have over 2000 hours experience working on client projects, site redesigns, fixes, new features and entirely new builds using the Drupal CMS.

I started learning to code at about the age of 12, when I wanted to build myself a website. Since then I have become proficient in many web based languages such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, SQL etc.. I learn something new each day and I'm always trying to better myself as a developer and as a person.

In my spare time, I am focusing on new technologies such as the MeteorJS framework using ReactJS as I believe these are where the future is heading. I am a friendly person, I'm always looking to build something new and exciting and I love what I do.

I am a fan of Kettering Town Football Club, and in my spare time, I am a board member of the Kettering Town (Poppies) Supporter's Trust for my efforts in developing and maintaining their website. This is a voluntary position, and I take part in various meetings to improve the site and the community around KTFC football club.

Outside the world of web I am a member of my local Brass Band, the Long Eaton Silver Prize Band where for over 11 years I have been playing, socialising and providing entertainment for those in my local community on a voluntary basis.
