Welcome

This microsite has been designed to to convey a brief description of who I am and what my current interests are. This site fulfils the requirements of this assignment by using all of the required HTML tags. I have chosen to present my current interests in a blog-like fashion.

As I work with web technologies every day I have taken this opportunity to add CSS and flesh the site out a bit more than what is required. I have validated this site against the HTML5 and CSS3.

Brief history




Born in Sydney my family spent a few fleeting years in Melbourne before moving to central west New South Wales to reside on a farm near Peak Hill. After my parents had separated my mother had had enough of farm life and decided to move to a neighboring town of Parkes where I spend the remainder of my childhood and adolescence.

A key turning point in my life was when I was offered a computer in exchange for helping a family friend chop wood each weekend throughout winter, I was 12 years old. From this point on I have had an obsession with all things computer related.
