About Me

Hello my name is Mark, living in South Wales. Currently have achieved an Bachelors Science Degree in Computing Information Systems. I'm a computer enthusiast and have a passion for IT technology, whether it being coding or graphics design. Always enjoyed solving problems and helping others. Being good at IT, graduated and worked as an IT Technician on a part-time basis.

Currently looking for work. If you want to get in contact please for any questions, feedback or work.

The continuing path of computing has become both personally and professionally a constant dynamic environment and has become one of the most enjoyed activities doing to date. Have always excelled at science and IT since my childhood, and finally getting a bunch of qualifications in the information systems area, now believe it's time to put all my knowledge and experience towards bigger and more exciting opportunities working for an employer and to better myself with ever changing technologies.

One of the greatest strengths about being a code & designer with an computing background is that not only handle the coding or graphical aspect of a project, but can also fully understand and even participate in the technical aspects of those same projects.


At the beginning of my career into computers I was introduced to a computer at a very early age that I mostly played games on at infant school. Over time one of the family member introduced me to Qbasic and DOS prompt extending knowledge into the programming world creating the simplest programs, such as "Hello World".

Started using this language to create a few mini games using letter characters as objects (SOBS) that would react when collided and make effects; this future fuelled the wanting to create more complex programs but it was not till later on how to use arrays, for loops and cases effectively.

After school years decided the IT path as this is a subject knew most about and was most comfortable with as from daily use of an computer; Took the BTEC First Diploma for IT Practitioners course provided by Bridgend College to try out if computing was the right path and it was. Got through the first course and continued on to BTEC National Diploma for IT Practitioners and passed. This gave enough confidence and understanding to head out and do IT freelance in 2009.

At this present time I work under and known as is an freelance IT technician and website designer; Keeping up to date with the latest technologies in the computing sector.
