My name is Paul. I am 30 and I am Freelance Web Developer from Manchester.
I am currently working for a Computer Based Testing company, this involves building Computer Based Tests for a variety of different clients in different sectors. For example:
I am passionate about producing professional looking web sites, using HTML5, CSS3, PHP, Wordpress, MVC Frameworks, SQL.
Currently I don't have a portfolio (other than this site) to speak of. I am trying to build one. I am in the lookout for small companies who require a web solution so that I can build my portfolio up.
I love Sport.
Especially Cricket, I could sit for all 5 days and watch a Test Match (especially the current Ashes Series). I used to play when at school and college and was a pretty decent fast bowler, and tail end bastman.
I also love Football. Although I wouldn't say I'm the best player around or the worst player for that matter. I just enjoy playing. I play once a week, 7 a-side with guys from my current company, and once a month we try and organise an 11 a-side game against other companies around Manchester. If you work for a company in the Manchester area and would fancy a game against us then click here and give me a shout. Maybe we could organise a game.
I love watching football too. I was a big Manchester United fan as a child and up until the end of Uni really. But then something changed. I am now a big follower of the club that is closest to my home town. Carlisle United. I don't get to go to that many games, but I do try and go to the away games that are around the Manchester area.
I like most sports really, F1, Rugby (both League and Union - both of which I played), if its on the TV I will watch it although there are some exceptions.
I also enjoy running. I've taken part in 6 Great Manchester Run's (10k's), and I have just signed up to the London Marathon 2014 ballot (I find out in October if I've been successful or not). Whether I will enjoy running after that is another question entirely.
