Hobbies and Interests

To switch things up from every other portfolio out there I thought I'd give you a chance to get to know me a bit more first. So here are some things that I am passionate about outside of my career.

blog

First and foremost I am a PC enthusiast. My passion is PC building and if money was no object I would spend my days researching and building custom PCs.

To date I have built 5 custom PCs, 2 of my own and 3 for my friends. On top of this I have fixed and troubleshooted countless issues for friends. I very much plan for these numbers to continue to rise and I enjoy helping where I can.

I also like to push my PC builds to the extreme by overclocking the PC components to get the most out of their performance. I also put a lot of time and effort into the aesthetics of my builds as I take great pride in how they look.

I also like to play games. I favour story driven, open world games where you can just sink into the story and world that has been built. I also won't say no to fun multiplayer games with my friends where you can just mess about and have fun.

I also like to stay fit and healthy by going to the gym regularly to keep in shape.

I no longer compete but my strongest sport is Table Tennis. I played for most of my teenage years and managed to reach regional level in the sport and also represented my University.

I have recently started reading again after many years of not touching a book. Having long been a fan of a the films, I thought I would give The Lord of the Rings books a try. I am glad I decided to do so as I had long forgotten the joy of reading and I have learnt so much more about the world that I love.
