Interests

Apart from being a software developer, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. In the warmer months, I spend a lot of time exploring the local trails, streams and outdoor events. When I'm trapped inside, I tend to spend my time working on my carpentry skills, playing games with friends and sharpening my software development skills.
