About Me

"Hello World!"

It might sound cliché but everyone and everything has a beginning and for me outputting those two words to the screen was the catalyst that kick-started my career as a developer. Fast forward a few years and I am now an Optimizely CMS certified employed at one of the UK's leading Optimizely gold partners.

Despite the simplicity of the "Hello World!" program, It showed me how straightforward it is to start anything and how rewarding every single accomplishment is, no matter how big or small it may be. In my experience, you rarely start anything knowing everything, so I always try to embrace new challenges. Whether it’s integrating an API or learning about a new framework, I often remind myself that at one point I knew absolutely nothing about what I can do today, so I try to step out of my comfort zone and use every opportunity to enhance my skills and knowledge where possible.
