A brief biography of how i got to today.
I Studied Design at Bolton Institute in the early 1990’s, gaining knowledge in Graphic Design, Packaging Design and Commercial Video and Photography. After Higher Education I found myself in a completely unrealated but highly rewarding career in Social Care, supporting adults with learning disabilities. During this time I have always had a keen interest in new developing modern technologies, being the first “point of call” for friends, colleagues or family members with a question or issue regarding anything technology based. In 2008 I began furthering my knowledge attaining qualifications in computer hardware and Microsoft desktop support. In 2009 I began my own business as a Mobile Pc/Laptop engineer, specialising in repairs, upgrades and new installations for home users and small business.
In 2011 my wife and I were blessed with a son, with there no longer enough hours in a day to manage full-time employment, childcare and my business, I was forced to close my company. With my son now at school I have the opportunity once again to further my knowledge and training. With a little help from experienced friends and a lot of perseverance, trial and error, google searches and fantastic help from Team Treehouse, I ventured into web design. I learned HTML, CSS, PHP and WordPress, and began creating and editing responsive websites. I am relishing the challenge of improving my skills and I am learning new techniques daily. I am currently gaining some in house experience at Rochdale based design company CreativJam and hopefully, working towards gaining permanent employment within this field.
