As you will have seen from the header, my name is Mark Eriksson. I'm a 22 year old, self-taught, web developer with a huge passion for the web.
I live in Merseyside (North West England) with my mum, dad and youngest brother, Aaron.
I've been making websites since the age of 11 and haven't lost interest since. I first got interested in making websites when I started using Piczo—a site (now closed) where you could sign up and make your own. After being introduced to being able to make my own websites, I wanted to learn more about how they are built manually without the aid of a drag-and-drop system, which enables elements to be placed where you want, so I did this by visiting other websites and viewing the source codes and figuring out how they were put together.
I enjoy making websites, playing snooker, watching TV series' (such as Breaking Bad and Dexter), socialising with friends and listening to music amongst other things that an average 20 year old male would enjoy to do.
I studied a course called Computer Studies which consisted of 5 modules; web design, programming, computer systems, computing in practice, computing and society.
I studied a 2 year course in ICT at college which consisted of 18 different units, all of which I received a Distinction in, so my final grade from Cowley was a Triple Distinction Distinction Distinction in ICT.
I'm a team leader at a local Argos store. My roles include; putting delivery away, dealing with customers, receiving deliveries, picking products, locking up of a night time.
