Mark Eriksson

About me

As you will have seen from the header, my name is Mark Eriksson. I'm a 27 year old, self-taught web developer with a huge passion for the web and all things technical.

I've been making websites since the age of 11 and haven't lost interest since. I first got interested in making websites when I started using Piczo—a site-builder where you could sign up and make your own website. After being introduced to being able to make my own websites, I wanted to learn more about how they are built manually without the aid of a drag-and-drop system, which enables elements to be placed where you want, so I did this by visiting other websites and viewing the source code and figuring out how they were put together.

I write code in HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript using Visual Studio Code and I communicate with MySQL databases.

I enjoy making websites, playing snooker, watching TV series and listening to music amongst other things that an average 27 year old male would enjoy to do.
