Starting as a data entry clerk for an ISP called Westnet, I found myself understanding the systems around me and quickly ascended in the ranks to become a supervisor within the Provisioning team. Liaising with developers in that capacity led me to realize I could pursue my programming interests as a career.
Fourteen years later, I have a combination of experiences as both a web developer in agency environments and software engineer in corporate environments. I am proud of having a countless list of completed projects and examples of good work and value given to my employers and clients alike in that time.
It's common practise for workplaces to supply the same laptop or workstation for all staff despite software engineers and other professionals needing more power for their software tools to work efficiently. I've personally lost countless hours over the course of my career to this issue.
Using the right tools for the job is a steering principle within web development for a good reason. I designed, built and use a cutting edge PC workstation for my business so that I can ensure optimal productivity and capability when it comes to different technologies and development environments.
