About

My Past

I’m originally from Yorkshire, England and I was known as the computer whizz-kid in my local town. I set up my own web design company at the age of 13, which I re-branded as TidalWare at 16. I spent several years developing a C++ game engine which ended up as a ridiculously complex game called Gravity Animals. At the age of 20 I was hired by Appcelerator for a 13 month internship in Silicon Valley, California. I graduated with a degree in Computer Games Programming, and then lived and worked in central London for another 13 months as an app developer at PageSuite.

My Present

Today I’m 24 years old and back to doing what I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid: running my own business. However, despite having an entrepreneurial drive I’ve never liked the idea of setting up a traditional office and hiring employees to work 9-5. I enjoy working independently with the freedom to travel anywhere.

In this blog I cover anything that interests me – programming, business as a freelancer, and travel as a digital nomad.
