Introduction

Hi I’m Mike, originally from Liverpool, UK. Now living in lovely Co. Leitrim, Ireland. I’m a husband, father and developer.

I love photography, my cat, long walks and strong cups of coffee. I hope to leave the world a better place than I found it.

Professional Profile

I have experience of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL.

I know some legacy languages like Visual Basic 6, COBOL and the ‘C’ language.

I understand the importance of lifelong learning and I’m constantly striving to improve myself. I’m passionate about developing video games, e-learning and machine learning.
