Hello and welcome to my little space on the web. One of those ugly mugs grinning at you is me, somewhere in Spain. Prizes for anyone who can guess which one is me.*

This about section is where I tell you a little about myself…. Well, I’m a child of the eighties who has grown up as the internet progressed from that scratchy dial up noise irritating my mum as she tried to make a phone call, to the superfast always on, always connected generation we know today.

Most people will tell you that they always knew what they wanted to do when they grew up but truthfully I am not one of those people. I have always tried to do what I enjoy best. This led me to do a Degree in History at the University of Sheffield but after 3 years of lectures that were a bit dull I knew I wanted to do something I could get excited about. Still loitering in education I took a postgraduate masters in Web Journalism and this is where I was first exposed to the basics of web design and development. It was something that they only taught the basics of, but from that very first experience of divs and cascading style sheets, I had a desire to learn more.

So here I am today; a front end web developer who specialises in WordPress websites, constantly striving to learn more. Thebettertwin website came about through my competitive nature with my twin brother who drives me to do better as we both have difficulty letting the other win. Sometimes competition is definitely healthy. For those wondering I am the one in white above.
