About me

I'm a highly motivated, innovative, friendly and adventurous software engineer with a passion for excellence and training.

My skills include a great ability for problem solving, always trying to learn new things, and a love for new technology and efficiency.Passionate about the environment and green energy, I’ve referred 11 people in just over a year to new green energy suppliers. I’m environmentally conscious, recycling as much as possible, and I’ve even developed my own custom-built Internet of Things (IOT) home automation technology that intelligently switches lights on and off to help save energy.
