About Me

Hi, my name's Jimmy and I'm a junior web developer in Bath, UK. I moved here from Cornwall in 2015 to attend university and I graduated from University of Bath in 2018 with a 2:1 in BSc (Hons) Computer Science. Prior to leaving Cornwall, I studied a National Diploma in Performing Arts for two years. Halfway through it I played a game called The Last of Us, which made me lose all interest in becoming an actor and instead geared me towards programming. At the end of the course I achieved the grade MPP.

Besides that, I'm becoming a bit of a bibliophile (I'm certainly already a tsundoku). I mostly read fantasy novels - Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, A Song of Ice and Fire - but I also quite like thrillers, horrors and crime stories. Some of my favourite authors include J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, Gillian Flynn, and Philip Pullman.

I watch a lot of movies, too. Star Wars and superhero movies (mostly Spider-Man) are my favourites. Proud ODEON Limitless card holder!

I also spend a decent amount of my spare time gaming. Although I generally play most things, action, adventure and RPG games with great stories are my favourites. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, The Last of Us Remastered, God of War, Bloodborne, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, Marvel's Spider-Man, Horizon Zero Dawn, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are some of the best games I've played this generation.

I hope to progress into the gaming industry one day, but as of right now I'm more interested in becoming a web developer.
