Hello and welcome to my personal website! I’m a software developer based in South Wales, UK and I aim to post the odd useful ‘blog post’ to this website, as well as give some information on projects and websites I have worked on over the years.

I started making websites when I was 10 or 11 years old, initially using Microsoft FrontPage before teaching myself HTML, PHP, Javascript and CSS (etc) and ‘hand coding’ my websites instead.

I then learnt Java in University and I currently work commercially as a ‘server side’ software developer (i.e. writing backend software). I’ve had quite a lot of experience over the years with the Java and the Spring framework (working with web apps, REST APIs and microservices), although I have also worked professionally and personally with PHP, Python and more.

Some side projects that I have worked on over the years includes:

  • 2001 – 2009: Tau Online
  • 2007 – 2009: A beta tester for the PHP/MySQL message board software Simple Machines Forum
  • 2009 – 2010: Devoted Hosting, a shared and reseller hosting service I created (and later sold).
  • 2013 – 2015: Plagiarism Guard
  • 2018 – present: a few informational websites, along with some small Github projects including a Neo4j cypher query formatter.
