More details about Myself and my Career

Preferred Languages

After my time spent at CodeClan, I have come out with a real passion for various different languages and frameworks. These include:

  • - JavaScript/React/Vue
  • - Java/Spring
  • - MongoDB/SQL(PostgreSQL/MySQL)

Left my role as Backup and Restore Engineer after almost 4 years to go back to my university line of education in Development. Enrolled in CodeClan in Glasgow to further this and undertook and 16 week intensive Coding bootcamp. This brought me exposure to various new languages and frameworks, while reigniting my knowledge of JavaScript.

Landed my first job out of CodeClan with TravelTek, working as a Full Stack Developer within the maintenance team. This has brought me exposure to multiple new areas of work. This includes Perl Programming, MySQL and various parts of the AWS cloud infrastructure(EC2, S3, DynamoDB, CodePipeline). I also had the ability to choose my operating system and have been working in Linux(Ubuntu) for most of my time with the company.

I am an enthusiast of most things fitness related and I particularly enjoy cycling where I will more often than not clock up over 120km per week between indoor and outdoor cycling. I also enjoy going to the Gym and partaking in CrossFit.

I completed by BSC(Hons) in Computer Games Development at the University of the West of Scotland in 2015 with a 2:1 grade. I learned so much during my time here in various different areas which included coding in JavaScript(jQuery), Python and Adobe ActionScript. It also included several projects which were completed as part of a team and I also had exposure to creating business plans and also Rights/Copyright within the Creative Arts industry.

I love travelling and have been to various different countries all over Europe for both work and leisure. One of my favourite cities in the world is Berlin.
