Hi, and welcome

A quick little intro.. I was born and raised in the seaside city of Plymouth, way back when music had rhythm but fashion was a bit of a disaster. Married with 4 children, my wife is my rock, my children my legacy.

Over 20 years experience in the IT sector in various roles, support, technical, managerial and operational. Web development started as a bit of an accident, just as a general interest a few years ago as something to keep me occupied. Then you enter the rabbit hole....

Skill Highlights

I don't think you can ever profess to be wholly proficient in any particular skill, there is always something to learn or experience. Particularly with IT skills. One day your skills are current the next day a whole new way of doing things appears. Having a good grasp of the basics, a logical mindset, along with an open mind and a willingness to continuously learn are the true pathways to success.

A Moment of Inspiration

  • Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking.

    Steve Jobs
  • "You - yourself, not someone else - need to determine where you want to go and what you want to do in your life. And once you make that decision, you can begin mapping a plan to get there and focusing on that objective every single day."
