Yo! Podcast

Posted on

This week Rob Hope was kind enough to invite me on to the Yo! Podcast to chat about the Nivo Slider, side projects, online tracking, productivity and Biffy Clyro (of course). If you have a spare 30 mins go and have a listen and let me know what you think on Twitter. If you enjoy…

Grace

Posted on

I’m delighted to be able to announce that on the 6th of August 2019, at exactly 8 pm, Grace Catherine Pellegrom came into the world weighing exactly 7lbs 🎉 To say we’re thrilled is an understatement. I mean just look at her! I know I’m totally biased but isn’t she just the most beautiful thing…

Expecting Again

Posted on

We’re thrilled to be able to announce that my wife and I are expecting again! Another wee bundle of joy is due to arrive in August 2019. We are so thankful to God for Joshua and the amazing wee boy he has become, and we’re just as thankful to Him for blessing us with a…

Becoming a Father

Posted on

On the 23rd March 2016 at 10:31pm my life changed. I had spent months pre-empting what it would be like to become a father. What would the experience of labour be like? How would we handle looking after a child 24/7? How would I feel when I first saw my child? As anyone who is…

I’m Changing My Job

For the last 3.5 years I’ve been working as a web developer over at ZillaMedia. In my time there I have worked on some awesome projects including building Snippi, working on PremiumPixels and building WordPress themes for ThemeZilla. However by far the biggest and most interesting project that I’ve worked on for the last 2…

On Scottish Independence

Posted on

I’ve been wanting to get my thoughts on Scottish Independence down in a coherent fashion for a while now, so here goes. First let me say I’m all for devolution. Scotland having as much power as possible to make it’s own decisions is a good thing, and while I understand the attraction of becoming an…

Getting My Web Development On

Posted on

So today I started my new job as a full-time Web Developer working for Orman Clark. Working from home has been great so far, and I’m loving my new iMac that I purchased recently to help me get my work done more efficiently. To help me celebrate this next step in my career I’ve also…

The Next Chapter

Posted on

For the last 3 years (excluding my final year of uni in-between) I’ve been working as a Software Engineer with a company that specialise in North Sea Oil and Gas. While the job has been enjoyable enough, as time has gone on, one thing has become very clear. I don’t want to work in this…
