When I first started building this site, I didn't really fully understand why I was doing it, although I had an overriding feeling that it was something I needed to do. In the end, I decided it would be a living embodiment of the journey that I am now on and hopefully a vehicle to help me start a new career as a developer.

So for now it will be a 'work in progress' and reflect the knowledge and skills I have gained along the way and will continue to evolve over time. To get things started I have created a few pages which, when furnished with information, will:

  • tell people a little bit about me,
  • include a summary and downloadable version of my CV,
  • provide details of my current studies, and links to completed assignments,
  • will showcase some of the things I have created along the way, and
  • will eventually include a blog about my journey.

Hello, I'm Dave

I am an experienced, trustworthy, reliable and highly motivated individual who would like to pursue a new career as a web developer. Over the last few months I have built a number of websites using WordPress and also enrolled for a couple of online developer related training courses. I have also recently worked in a digital agency with responsibility for the day to day running of the office.

Earlier in my career, I regularly led matrix teams to deliver complex development projects. I had an excellent track record developing and launching projects/products in tight timescales. I possess a strong business and commercial focus gained in various product and project management roles. I had an excellent track record developing and launching projects/products in tight timescales.
