I'm extremely passionate about Drupal Web Design and development, SEO and Open Source communities in general.

In terms of writing actual code, my skills are still maturing. I'm so far confident with PHP, SQL, CSS and HMTL. I can in most cases understand and apply technical documentation. I guess I'd call myself a "Green developer", in the sense that I mostly re-cycle everyone else's code. Being as there so many modules that often fulfill most clients requirements.

Prior to my obsession with web technologies and building websites, I was crazy about business management, sales and training. I invested several years into the motor industry so as to practice the art of sales, negotiation, management and training. Being a Sales Executive at 17 and a Business Manager at 21 was really rewarding, the highlight being closing sales and hitting targets. I found that to be a serious buzz. The nice new company car every three months wasn't bad either.

At the age of 23 I took the bold step into self-employment. I had been on holiday in Thailand, when I met some individuals who made their living through their laptop. I decided from that day forwards, that I would make it my mission in life to learn how to do this.

So I ventured back to Bangkok, where I decided to begin an eBay career. After several weeks of researching and getting educated on the prices of things, I found who was to be my supplier for the next 4 years. Mr Somboon supplied me with Mini-dresses, of all things, but it was the niche market that I found. This was not before trying watches, handbags and taxidermy. I've still got one of those butterflies on the wall as a reminder of the journey. Unfortunately, the exchange rate for GBP against the Thai Baht became weak and the dress business became non viable. Not before completing over 5000 trades...
