I like to delve into new, exciting projects to aid personal development. It’s what spurs me on and gets me up in the morning.

My first project outside of work was CraftedGenius, a gaming YouTube channel. Amassing over 6000 subscribers and a million views, I turned my love for video games into a cool hobby. I learned a lot about video editing, Photoshop and technical skills to make for entertaining content.

The second project I started was That’s Your Best Bet. This was my first delve into web development. Since 2012, I have self-taught web development and web design skills to help amass the portfolio I have to date. I jumped straight into affiliate marketing, a side of the internet that I didn’t know existed. Over time, That’s Your Best Bet helped generate a secondary source of revenue.

Since then, I have been working on building a portfolio. Leaping at projects that I know I can contribute value toward. I like to test my programming by learning C# and expand upon the technical skills that I learned from university.

I graduated from university with a first class honours in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. And for the next couple of summers, volunteered with Camp America.

It turned out to be the single most important moment of my life. For it was the first time, I stepped out of his comfort zone.

I learned a great deal of independence and working vigorously hard for a greater cause. Providing the children a once in a lifetime experience meant that some of it shined off on me too. Since, I have been writing There’s No Place Like Summer Camp which is to be published as a book later this year.
