Hi! My name is Kieran

Back in 2020 I switched career paths from the field of electronic engineering into the web development space. Fast forward to today and I'm passionate about delivering top class interactive UI/UX. Currently I'm employed as a full stack developer at a company in the tech blogging space called Hashnode .

Going back further, I was born in Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿, UK, and had spent most of my time there up until the last few years. Today I am based in Ireland 🇮🇪. When I'm not writing code you may find me up a mountain, playing guitar and listening to music, or in the kitchen whipping up a feast.

Want to find out more about my journey? Below I have shared a timeline for you to explore. You can also check out my blog post where I share how I got into the web development space: How I got into code.

Thanks for stopping by!

Timeline: Old to New

Sep 2013 - May 2017

MEng Electronic Engineering, Bangor University (1st Class Honours)

I spent 4 years earning a masters degree in Electronic Enginering at Bangor University, Wales. It was essential in teaching me all about effective teamwork, communication, delegation and soft skills I apply to this day.

May 2018 - Apr 2019

Post university

During the end of my time at university I realised my passion for Electronic Engineering wasn't there. I'm not the kind of person to persue something I don't enjoy. With that in mind, after graduating I spent 2 years working at a local buisness to save up funds that would allow me to spend a prolonged period of time travelling the world.

Apr 2019 - Jan 2021


I spent around 18 months living and working around New Zealand and planned to travel further after those 2 years were up. Unfortunately some big event happened in early 2020 and my onward travel plans had to be scrapped.

Mar 2020 - May 2021

Moving into web development

All of a sudden I had all this free time for something so I spent it changing career paths into web development through self study. Fortunately I was in a position to put all my time into learning and picked up skills in several fontend and backend technologies with a focus on JavaScript.

Jan 2022 - Present

Writing a successful blog

With some web dev skills under my belt I started blogging to share the knowledge I had gained. Soon after I had created a blog on Hashnode sharing both technical and non-technical topics and finished as a top 50 writer on the platform several months running. Today my blog has received more than 110,000 visitors!
