Names George Fincher, I Live in Birmingham, Where I Weave Web Dev Magic.

I like to think I've lived a storied life. I went to university initially to study a masters in physics & came out with a bachelors in film, drama, philosophy and mathematics. I then went on to achieve an MFA in acting at Guildford School of Acting.

The pandemic was brutal, we all know that. It made me rethink acting, so I got three separate jobs in the midst of all the madness. But with determination, grit and vigour I ventured back into the realm of programming.

My programming journey earnestly began in 2020, with my first attempt at learning python. I gave up after a few months due to the 80 hour work weeks and lack of free time...

In 2021 I realized I needed a goal, so I swapped languages to HTML, CSS & Javascript so that I could build web applications & fuel my learning with the dream of becoming a web developer.

2022 came around and I was still no closer to becoming a web developer. So I did what I thought was the best thing, I enrolled at a boot camp at the University of Birmingham where I went on to finish top of the class which leads us delightfully to the present.
