Hey, I'm Oliver.

I'm a software engineer and computer science teacher from the UK.

About me

Update 2021-12-17:: I'm in the process of re-uploading my blog. It'll be back up soon!

Passionate about both programming and education, I consider myself a dual practitioner, bringing together proven industry experience as a software engineer upon a concrete academic foundation, multiple years of classroom teaching experience, and a wealth of pastoral knowledge acquired from years of well-recognised volunteerism within student welfare and support.

By day...

I'm a full-stack software engineer at Stickee Technology, with a serious interest in building robust and innovative experiences on the web and beyond.

Some of the technologies I love: Laravel, Vue.js, Nuxt, Tailwind, and more recently, TypeScript and Inertia.js.

By night...

What started as a hobby project during the 2020 lockdown, I'm working on a multitude of upcoming video games under Petrobolos Games with the help of some friends.

I'm also interested in foreign languages, reading, and doing online courses.
