I am currently a Senior Developer working for Syndicut, a digital agency based in Abingdon Oxford. Here, I have had the opportunity to work on amazing projects using Kentico (as a Kentico Certified Developer), Prismic and developing large-scale custom applications. For me, my biggest achievement was developing a website for Sky Arts where a user could create portraits of themselves based on six popular artists.
I primarily focus developing solutions using the .NET Framework, but I have been known to dabble in other technologies now and then. My programming language of choice is C# and passionate in building web applications using MVC Razor. With over 8 years experience in the industry (has it really been that long?!?!), I am just as passionate about coding as I was from the very first console app I created many moons ago that read out: "Hello World!".
Pen + Paper = Productivity
I was fuelled into writing my own views upon reading a very interesting post by Scott Hansalman, where he argues that we would all be more productive and stress free if we were to assimalate all our thoughts and ideas to paper rather than to an electronic device. I was intrigued by Scott's argument and he brings up many valid points that I agree with.

Google Seems To Have An Issue With My Server Response Time...
I think I have resolved the server response time issue...It has something to do with a Web Statistics service called AWStats that was enabled by default on my hosting. Once I disabled through my Plesk Management Portal, Google PageSpeed didn't seem to have any issue with my server response.
My Paypal REST API .NET Starter Kit
I decided to create my own Paypal REST API .NET Starter kit, by combining my own efforts together with PayPal documentation and code examples from other developers online.
When working on large projects whether that be websites or software appliations, I like to try and make sure that settings from within my app/web configuration files are not only easily accessible within code, but also maintainable for future updates.
