About me

I am currently studying a part-time Foundation Computer Science Degree in Swansea University while working as an electrical supervisor for the family business. I started learning C# three years ago and fell in love with coding. I have continually developed my skills since, most recently learning Java at uni, and now have a good knowledge of Java, C++, C#, ASP.NET MVC, HTML and CSS.
