About me How I got where I am today
I got my first taste of code writing back in 1985, at the young age of 8. I was introduced to the input magazines and began learning pascal and variants of the basic programming language to create simple games on a ZX Spectrum.
Started programming in 1985 at the young age of 8 year old
My interest and skills grew, by the age of 13 (in 1990), using an Atari ST, I was making my own games and hacking / modifying existing ones. It would be a couple of years until I progress onto a windows 3.1 PC and move onto the Qbasic programming language and later the C language.
Used Windows 3.1 and MS-DOS
In 1997 I made my first phone call to the internet (yes you had to phone the internet back then), I was instantly addicted and accumulated a rather large phone charge on more then one occasion. Within my first year online, I had created my own website and was being asked by others to create more for them. At this point I was working full time as a bench hand joiner but started to attend college courses in an attempt to transition into a computer aided designer.
Created by first website in 1998
After graduating from college I accepted a new job that promised to train me up as a CNC operator, when this promise never materialised I returned to college and completed a solid modelling level 3 course and moved on to a more suitable job allowing me to use all my skills. In 2006 my third child was born, directed by my desire to be around my family, I decide to take my skills (that have been a hobby up until now) and begin to work for myself. This also leads to me doing a number of programming courses with the open university to develop my skills and understanding further.
Working freelance since 2007
Reviews What people think
Stephen is one of the best IT solutions providers that I have ever worked with. His knowledge is excellent and his approaches are excellent. He understands the dynamics of website development and the website he designed for us has brought growth into our business. I will recommend him without any iota of doubt and you will be glad to meet a down to earth person in business. – Dominion Training
Does exactly what he says. I already had a website, Stephen took what I had and bought it up to date. I found more people wanting my work. Will use him again when I come to update. – Dirty to Clean
My webpage is about showing what I can do. Stephen has captured this and made my site easy to navigate around just like I wanted. – BePainted
