Now

September 2019

I’ve recently moved into my first home with my partner, Nay! After a lot of ups and down, needing a rewire, needing plastering work, getting stressed, take out meals and skip runs; we are in.

Now I’m settling in, I want September to be full of catching up, socialising and enjoying time with others. I wrote about my simplistic goals on 200 Words A Day, which included socialising with friends and colleagues, going to meetups and getting more involved in my communities; 200WAD and Makerlog.

I want to put on hold my sporadic project work and focus on offering my services to helping out new Rails developers with code legibility, performance and maintainability. Please get in touch if you need help with your Rails codebases. That being said, I’ll be working on more Calajo projects, including client work.

June 2019

I work at Yozu Ltd in Liverpool, where I have worked since graduating University 4 years ago.

I also manage my own development projects under _Calajo, where I am looking to expand on skills I don’t get to use in my day job, such as marketing, project management and Dev Ops.

I’m in the process of buying my first house with my partner, Nay, and hope to be moving in very soon!

I’m spending a lot of time on self improvement this year. Since I’m a data driven person, this involves a lot of data tracking, spreadsheets and habit building. For the entirety of 2019, I’m tracking my habits daily, including side project working hours, gaming time, health metrics, weight, syn count, exercise and walking. I’m also trying to maintain beneficial habits by utilising streaks, such as 200 Words A Day, Makerlog and Duo Lingo - did I mention I’m writing and I’m learning French?
