I write code and words. I'm based in Coventry, England although the Lake District is my favourite place in the world.
I'm made up of several parts:
I've been writing code for websites since the late ninties. I use PHP frameworks like Laravel and CodeIgniter to build websites of all sorts.
In my day job I'm soon to be Head of Development at Clever Cherry in Birmingham.
I like to write. I've managed:
- A diploma with distinction in Freelance and Feature Writing from the London School of Journalism.
- An Advanaced Diploma in Copywriting (also passed with a distinction grade)
- I wrote a book called Jump Start Rails which was a beginners guide to coding. with Ruby on Rails and was published by SitePoint
I work hard at staying fit. I ran for years, but never very fast. These days, I tend to walk a lot. I find long distance walking particularly appealing. It's nice getting from one place to another under your own steam.
