About

I am a very enthusiastic graduate and lecturer of Computer Science. My childhood interests have always been to do with building and solving problems. I indulge these interests both in work and in my hobbies.

Experience

I previously worked at Coleg Gwent for 10 years, building a significant amount of teaching experience delivering the BTEC in Computing. I was primarily the teacher for the programming modules, making use of languages such as Java, PHP, MySQL, Javascript with jQuery, HTML and CSS. I also delivered Procedural Programming, Systems Architecture, Developing Business Applications and Computing Mathematics on the HND in Computing. This experience, combined with my web and application development work outside of college led me to my current position.

External

Outside of work, I am often found training for my next running event with my local running club or planning my next construction project, such as building furniture or a straw bale studio in my garden! My spare time is often taken up with development projects, such as the Lliswerry Runners website, or unusual home experiments, making use of Arduinos and similar smaller programmable devices. My building and renovation work on my property has also led me to gain a great amount of interest in sustainable building and technologies.
