Luke Twomey

About

Hey guys! My name's Luke Twomey, a web developer from the UK.

After graduating with a first in BSc(Hons) Computing Studies in 2006, I began working for a London software company, initially on the client helpdesk and later as a technical consultant.

Five genuinely enjoyable years later, I jumped at the opportunity to explore more of the world, backpacking for a year. Aside from countless incredible experiences, this gave me ample opportunity to choose an exciting new career path.

Above all else, I craved the impossible dream - to enjoy what I did for a living! Was it just a mythical goal only reserved for sports people and fighter pilots?

I have always been a very logical person, methodical and well organised, with a talent for problem solving and a high attention to detail. I had always known I enjoyed development - right from when I first started programming in university. It was finally becoming clearer to me in which direction I should be heading.

After my moment of realisation I dived headfirst into teaching myself the basics of web development, and after producing my first proper website I was hooked. I was soon immersing myself in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and all the other fun stuff that came along with it.

I landed my very first development job at Streeten Design in May 2015, and I've not looked back since.

I'm currently working for Sky, part of a team responsible for the digital marketing campaigns. I develop HTML5/JavaScript banners to be deployed in the Google DoubleClick Studio environment.

So far I've managed to pick up the following skills along the way.
