I'm a student currently living in the United Kingdom. I am interested in programming, cycling, technology and gaming. In programming, I am proficient in the languages HTML and CSS, and I enjoy making websites. I also enjoy writing scripts in Python, especially using APIs for games and tools that I use. I write on my site, The Nerdy Student, about technology and productivity.
You can check out my portfolio and my website below. If you would like be to write a website at a low price for you, please feel free to email me!

This is one of the more complex sites I have done so far. The site is highly responsive and looks great on all devices, and features a read more button on mobile devices in order not to overwhelm the user with text. It also features a header than changes background as the site is scrolled in order to make it visible over the page elements, and a card that has a colour changing background. You can see the desktop version in the left part of the image, and on mobile on the right.
This site takes advantage of a video in the header to catch the attention of a customer. It has a PHP form, so customers can easily contact to book a table, as well as a responsive header with email and phone numbers on it. In addition, it has a stylised menu with easy readability, prices and comments on the item showed.
This is a card layout site that showcases various sites for a company. The cards open the links to the sites in a new tab, with a shadow behind the cards to give them a realistic look when hovered over. In addition, the header is responsive as is the site, meaning that it also looks great on mobile.
This was one of the more challenging site I have done. The site doesn't work on mobile, however it looks like the old version of MySpace despite being built up from the ground. The project was very fun to do, as it had it's own set of challenges, including alignment of various boxes and the images.
This is my old personal site. I designed it to look like about.me, as I wanted a personal site without the branding. I was very happy with how the site turned out, however I changed to this format as I wanted to improve the portfolio page. I was having issues with it using the old site template, due to images not looking too good.
League Statistics is one of the first proper Python programs I made. It uses the Riot API to allow you to look at a players match statistics, and you can save and load players in as well as select what server they use. I also wrote a website for it, with a beginners guide so people new to Python would be able to get it up and running. You can view the website here.
A HTML site for a mobile dentist business. Text and images supplied by client, with certain requests for end product. Client was very happy with end product, with quick loading speeds and basic SEO implementation. In addition to this, a simple HTML form was implemented in order to easily receive mail.
The client had a Google Blogger site that they wanted integrated into the site, and this was done using an iFrame, making the blog look as if it was native to the site.
I'm currently a student, and writing websites and Python scripts is something I find fun and challenging. Freelance web development is my current part time job, and I specialize in highly responsive, rapidly loading static sites. You can see my work above. I provide low rates per hour compared to other developers, and version my work to make it easy for the client to see the changes put in place.
I'm a big fan of JetBrains, and use PHPStorm for website development. If I have to interact with databases, I use DataGrip. For interacting with Git, I prefer to use GitKraken, however I still use the Git CLI frequently. If I'm on the go, I use Working Copy to work with my GitHub repositories, and Textastic as my editor.
For Python, I use PyCharm and Python 3.6, as that is the latest version that works with
discord.py, which I use to maintain a small Discord bot on a server with my friends. On the go, I use Pythonista, however it is quite limited even with the use of Stash and Blackmamba.
