My love for programming stems from the junction of my two hobbies, art and technology. As a child I would love to draw and paint to express myself creatively. As I got older I explored avenues of creativity through technology, building small pieces of software in my spare time. When it was time go to university I was faced with a choice to pursue a career in design or development. I chose development, ignorant to the fact that the line between the two disciplines is very blurred.
Soon after getting my first web development position I realised that I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to pursue my two passions in my everyday life. My career so far has been nothing short of exciting.
