Apart from being a web developer, I enjoy creating art, drawing or painting or sculpting. I love reading books and I have hundreds of titles in my Audible library, I listen to audiobooks all day and my Apple Airpods are my constant companions.

I was a child of the 80's and 90's so I grew up loving video games and computers. I've been building my own gaming PC's for decades, and like to unwind by blowing up spaceships, battling giant robots, hunting undead zombies, or facing off against competitors in Overwatch.
