Around 2001 our company moved into instructor led training where I started training mainly corporate companies in all the technologies I had learnt. I joined Leading Training in 2011 with a primary focus on technical training and managing the IT infrastructure. In the last 5 years my main focus has shifted back to my roots of back-end web development. This now involves writing web-based applications to automate business workflows. For this I mainly make use of a PHP framework called Laravel and a library called Laravel Livewire.
I am very active in my church in all things technical. I enjoy mixing live sound and assisting with the live streaming of services.
