Work I am interested in


Software Development

Java, C#, C++, VB.net
Over the past 4 years studying my Computer Science degree I have attained a great knowledge of the above programming languages. I would love nothing more than to spend my days working at coding software for companies using these languages. I have ordered the progamming langauges based on my strongest to weakest - however building my knowledge of my weakest programming languages is something I aspire to do. I consider myself to be a strong programmer and a quick study when it comes to software development - I tend to pick it up when it is explained to me first time.

Web Design

HTML, CSS, ASP.net, JavaScript, JQuery
Throughout my degree I have also studied how to design and code websites. I have spent 4 years studying HTML, CSS, JavaScript and JQuery and know how to use these to the best of their ability in which I done to create a wide variety of personal websites. I would be interested in working as a web designer to develop sites for companies and to build their site however they wish. I have built many cross-platform web applications which were also compatable on android phones. With the introduction of Twitter Bootstrap 2.0 websites can be simply made compatable with tablets and mobile phones.

My Hobbies


Music

A big fan of music. From The Beates to Tiesto and everything in between. Learning to play the piano - takes weekly lessons.

DJing

Picked up music mixing as a hobby for fun and fell in love instantly. No better feeling that putting a big smile on someones face and making them dance their socks off!

Photography

Loves to get the camera out - and not just for a selfie! Nightlife, Nature, Sports... Cameras ready, prepare for flash.

Travelling

Boards an aeroplane many times a year. Who doesn't love to get away from home? Plans to see the world. Who wouldn't want to do that?!
