a little bit

My name is Sam and I am a web designer and photographer. I graduated from the University of Leicester with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.

My main areas of expertise are in HTML5, CSS, Javascript, jQuery (including some SQL, ASP and PHP) in addition to wildlife and nature photography. I like to develop creative and elegant solutions to complex problems, with a constant focus on the psychology of end-users.
