I’m Kevin Parish, a Software and Web Developer currently based in Toowoomba, Queensland.
I have recently finished my Bachelor of Information Technology, Majoring in Applied
Computer Science at the University of Southern Queensland. Prior to this I also completed
a Certificate III in Information Technology and a Diploma of Information Technology
(Software Development) at the Gold Coast Institute of TAFE.
I have always been passionate about technology and science, some of my first memories are
of my grandfather’s Macintosh PC and later my first gaming console, the SEGA. Since I was
young I have been interested in technology, always keeping up with the latest consoles and
amassing quite a large collection. When I got through high school I saved my money and built
my first PC.
Family and Friends would always call on me to troubleshoot, fix, build and recommend PC’s for
them. During High School, I had my first taste of programming and have been hooked ever since.
In my spare time, I am usually still around computers as I am a big gamer. I love to relax by
playing games with my wife and our friends.
I enjoy problem solving and finding better and more efficient ways to approach problems. I
am relaxed when I am programming and at ease when I am programming with my favourite languages
being Java and PHP although I am proficient in many other languages.
I enjoy a challenge as well as being able to utilize my knowledge and skills to not just implement
a solution but to also research and learn any other modern and innovative solutions that may be available.
I work well as a part of a team as my many years of customer service experience at Woolworths
have taught me, however I am also very skilled at working alone. I keep myself motivated and on task
under minimal supervision even supervising others and keeping them on task.
I very much look forward to taking the next step and starting an exciting new career as a
Software and Web Developer.
