Hi there! 👋 I'm a second-year student studying Computer Science at the University of Manchester, and I'm also a Software Developer with a strong and evidenced track record in open-source development.

Having experienced the benefits of open-source development myself, I strive to further the open-source community and introduce more people to the world of programming!

I'm looking for industrial placements/internships starting summer 2021! Contact me via LinkedIn.


  • Founder of discord.js 🚀 - a highly popular Discord API library with over 6 million downloads, powering some of the largest online communities. I created this in 2015 when I was just 14 years old, and have spent the time since learning new practices, languages, team management skills, programming concepts, and (of course) growing as a developer!

  • Dev Officer at UniCS 👥 - in addition to creating software used to run Hackathons and teaching others about software development, I've been spending my spare time this summer creating a new social networking platform that allows incoming and existing students at the University to meet and connect with each other virtually via video and text chat!

  • Serial Hackathon winner (and now organiser!) 👨‍💻 - I have participated in (and won) several Hackathons, ranging from creating a multiplayer game that teaches people Braille, to using Google APIs to create an intelligent location-based reminder Android app, to modernising space invaders and winning best in show at a large Hackathon held in Greater Manchester! I'm now using my experience to volunteer and make international University-level Hackathons possible.
