ABOUT

Movie

I am an aspiring front end developer and recent graduate of Computer Science and Information Technology, that is based in Bern, Switzerland. I recently completed my studies in Ireland and have just moved to Bern. Since then I have began taking German lessons and am teaching myself front end development. This website is both a learning exercise and a showcase of my abilities. While I am new to front end development I have recently found a passion for the blend of Coding and Design that front end development brings.

    Zenimax Online Studios – Customer Support Representative

    During my hiatus I worked in Zenimax Online Studios as a customer support agent. At the time Zenimax were just releasing The Elder Scrolls Online. As both an avid Elder Scrolls fan and gamer this was a wonderful opportunity to meet and work with like minded people. I had a fantastic time working to help the players. I eventually began working in areas with more responsibility such as Terms of Service. I also got a chance to flex my tech muscles and did a bit of work on Splunk. Splunk was available to us agents as a tool to analyse logs but was under utilised. I organised a team of like minded people to dive into the different possibilities it offered us.

    Some Time Away

    After my third year in college I decided to take two years off to recoup my finances and take some time to myself. It was during this time that I worked in Zenimax, met the love of my life, and ultimately made the decision to move to Switzerland. After this I continued my studies and completed my degree.

    Tellnet Computers - Computer Technician

    My father owns a chain of computer repair and sales stores that I worked in from the age of 16 onwards. Here I learned to repair everything from a virus ridden computer to a malfunctioning walkie-talkie. I also developed my communication skills through my interactions with customers. I was responsible for managing the shop and running the place on my own at times. My experiences in the shop gave me a desire to learn more, and so, I decided to attend University and study computer science.
