Welcome. You’ve found my little corner of the internet. I’m Ashley – the guy behind this site.
I’m a 90s child – born somewhere in the midst of that decade. At birth, I was diagnosed with leber’s congenital amaurosis (LCA) – a rare inherited eye disease affecting 1 in 80,000 of the population. Effectively it renders me completely blind – no colour, no light or dark, no shadows. I’ve been asked many times in the past if it’s like staring into darkness – and the truth is I have no idea, because I don’t know what darkness looks like.
I turned to music, something which became my retreat, and still is to this day. I became a musician, first learning the drums, then moving on to a range of other instruments including the guitar and piano. I love almost every musical genre and have an extensive, and constantly growing collection.
From an interest in music, stemmed an interest in technology. It started with audio equipment – from a young age, I would disassemble hi-fi systems and other electronics, learning how they work and how to repair them. I then received my first computer – and soon learned the inner workings of both hardware and software. I became a programmer, building my first website during a break in 2009, and steadily advancing my skills creating a range of advanced software applications and a wide variety of other websites.
You’ll find many things here. The Blog contains tutorials, rants and ramblings, as well as updates on my various projects and life itself. The Downloads section contains handy scripts, apps and a few time-wasting games for your amusement.
And, in my free time, I develop several Projects – from musical ventures, to blogs, to new applications.
Finally – the Contact page is the place for enquiries, comments, suggestions and complaints. You can also interact with me using the social media links on every page.
Around The Web
It’ll come as no surprise that, being a heavy internet user, I’m an active contributor in several online communities – as well as on the various social networks. Check out these links:
