About

Born and raised in the south west of Australia, I got my first taste of web development when I was 12 years old. I've been in love with it ever since. Currently working as a freelancer and the primary web developer for Campaign Edge Sprout for around 7 years now.

Outside of my work, I like to work on my side projects. It helps me to improve my skills and a chance to experiment without the constraints of timelines and budgets. If I'm not doing that, you'll probably find me playing around in C# and the Unity engine.

In my spare time.. you'll find me either learning Turkish badly, telling my wife lame jokes, supporting my beloved West Coast Eagles or hanging with my pets.
