About Paul

Hero image

Hi, that is my happy, smouldering and insane faces. I could not find an angry face, so have another smoulder. Also yes, I am British so I spell smoulder with a u.

I'm Paul and as I'm typing this I'm currently 32. I live in Gateshead in the North East of England and I work in Newcastle (when not in the midst of a global pandemic).

Developing websites and applications is what I do. I work for EPAM Systems and the words I express are my own and are not representative of them or anyone else (other than me). My speciality is in building Sitecore applications. I can be described as a full stack web developer, but I primarily operate on the backend. I have a high familiarity with .NET technologies and frameworks and I will likely write about them.

The rest of my day can be summarised by the followings gifs.
