I was born and raised in
sunny Wicklow Town more than 30 years ago and since that day football, music and having a laugh with my nearest and dearest have been my major reasons for living. Oh yeah, and I am a Web Designer specialising in developing mobile responsive WordPress websites!
Professionally it’s been an interesting and varied journey for me to get here. I’ve swept the floors of the factory in which my Dad worked, pulled pints in my football team’s local boozer, carried the tools for some tradesmen I know but hey, it paid for my college education and subsequent IT career!
In 2006, I started working as a web designer & developer and began freelancing under my own name rather than create a facade of a large company.
When I’m not in front of my shiny computer screen designing something, you might find me
playing, trickin about on my guitar, singing beautifully in tune, shouting out a song, floating skillfully round a football pitch like Leo Messi, just turning up! There’s not much left for me to add except I have a life-partner and a pair of daughters whom I love dearly and I am always, nearly always smiling 🙂
Following 10 years as a COBOL Programmer (or code-monkey) in the corporate world with CSC (Computer Science Corporation) & Axa Insurance, I entered the freelance world of web design and web development in 2006.
I am educated to BSc level in Computer Science and hold a CIW Certified Internet Webmaster qualification yet I still find the internet to be the best place to research, study and expand my skill set.
