Welcome to my personal website!

Technology enthusiast

I am very interested in technology, particularly relating to computer science. I am most interested in web design and development.

My main hobby is programming. One of my most well known products from this is ZPE. I also am the sole creator of BalfBlog, BalfBar and BalfSlider.

A little bit about me

In 1997, when I was six years of age, I got my very first computer. I was always very interested in the ins and outs of it and dismantled it to see how it worked.

Years later, in 2016 I received my BSc (with honours) in Computer Science, obtaining a First class degree.

I'd like to welcome you to my website and hope you enjoy using it as much as I have enjoyed building it!

A bit more about me

Born in Scotland and given a computer at age 7 by my parents, I went on to study computer science at university in 2012 and obtained a first class degree (you can read my dissertation here).

In 2010 I decided to get myself a personal website. In 2012 and then 2013 I rebuilt the site and that's what you are visiting right now. This website is entirely my own work (apart from jQuery and Magnific Popup): I wrote the HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and designed the databases that power this site from nothing.

My main interests are in web development, digital design, computer language design, software development and in working with young people and computers.

I am currently a freelance web developer and work as the head of development and computer consultancy for Jambour Development.

Website relaunch

As you may be aware I am about to launch a new version of my website. This is a live timer that shows exactly when it will relaunch.
