Web Designer / Developer
In 2017, I completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Media at the University of Portsmouth with First Class Honours and received the KHIPU group award for Best Mobile Application 2017 and Outstanding Digital Media Student 2017.
In 2019, I completed my Master’s degree in Digital Media at the University of Portsmouth and was awarded a Distinction.
My specialities are WordPress, HTML5 and CSS3 and working with the Divi WordPress theme and visual page builder.
In my spare time, I like to create the odd tune using Ableton Live Suite. You can listen to my tracks here.
I enjoy playing percussion, keyboards and singing and love going to the theatre, especially to watch musical productions and local amateur dramatics.
The development of augmented and virtual reality is also an interest of mine and consequently how each of these technologies is being applied to video games, medical science and mental health.
