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.
