Hi! How Are You?

Hi there, and welcome to my online portfolio. In case you haven't got it yet, my name's Colm Morgan and here you will find regular ramblings in my journal, general web-based experiments I have been working on and samples of my previous work.

Have a little browse through, try out a few of the experiments and really just bask in the wonders of my world.

If you want to get in touch, you can talk to me via Twitter/@carmat71.

A little about me

I am currently in my final year of Interactive Multimedia Design at University of Ulster, Jordanstown, Northern Ireland. I joined this course after successfully completing a Foundation Degree in Science, Multmedia at Belfast Metropolitan College in 2009. However, before beginning the course at Jordanstown, I completed a 12 month internship at Extranomical Adventures in San Francisco, California. This internship was primarily based upon SEO techniques but also involved maintaining the website, monitoring its progress, improving the internal reservation system and interacting with the customer base.

Despite my university course being aimed more at the design aspect of web development, I would consider myself to be more of a programmer, in particular with CSS3 transitions and animations. I would rather spend time on coding PHP, JavaScript / jQuery and, more recently, Ruby on Rails.

I have a keen interest in the world of poker. I enjoy playing, watching and keeping up to date with tournaments worldwide. This interest has extended to my Major Project Proposal, which aims to revolutionise the use of tournament software within large scale, live poker tournaments.

I enjoy travelling and, eventually, I intend to travel around the world meeting up with old friends I originally met in San Francisco. I recently went on a trip touring Thailand with a friend and thoroughly enjoyed the change in culture, active exploring and trekking through the jungle.
