Welcome to TomCodes
Posted: 16 April 2020
So you’ve found yourself at TomCodes… you’re wondering why you’re here right?
I am Tom Brooks, Software Engineer at Dixon’s Carphone and I love doing what I do! So I do it in my spare time… But this site isn’t just about my software development it is about me.
I was born in 1994… which makes me 25 when this post was made and I am from a little town called Wallasey in the North West of England. Where is Wallasey?! Well it is the little bit that sticks out of England in the North West… Actually, easier to explain. You know Liverpool right? Across the Mersey. Simple.
Some cool facts about me:
- I am a guitarist
- I studied Business, ICT and Music at College
- I have a BSc in Computer Forensics from Liverpool John Moore’s University with a 2:1
- I have been a PHP Developer since 2015
- I am engaged to be married in October 2020
- I have a tracheostomy scar
- I have 4 tattoos
- I have had 8 operations
- I live in the East Midlands
- I have an accent very similar to the scouse accent
- 2 of my best friends are a trumpet player and a drummer with the same first name
One of my favourite quotes of all time is this:
You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.Harper Lee
