Summary

Programming since a young age, I am old enough to remember HIMEM.SYS and young enough to understand twitch.tv

I have attained a 2:1 BSc in Computer Science, despite having been disciplined at every educational institution I have ever attended for unauthorized recreational interference with the equipment.

I am dedicated to simplicity, but I will always put the true nature of the customer’s needs before the tyranny of the database schema: I believe that computers should serve people, not the other way around.

Bad code annoys me.
