My name is Paul Adam Davis. I’m 22. I spend my days building web sites where I’ve built and worked on sites & micro-sites for Nike Size?, Sport Academies, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Salomon Grom Camps and more.
The story of how I got into web design is one I’m not too sure of, so I’ll skip that for now. However, the story of how I went from struggling freelancer to agency developer is a short one.
I started using Twitter in the summer of 2009, that’s where I found a tweet advertising a small agency in Folkestone who were looking for a junior developer. I applied on Twitter and shortly after got the job. I then got an email from an agency I freelanced for offering me a better job in London which I accepted in November 2009.
I stayed there until January 2011 when I moved to a larger & more local agency in Maidstone but decided to leave and go back to my old job in London again. I’m playing ping pong. In March 2012, I took the plunge & quit the day job, and turned freelancer. One job led to another, but all stemmed from Twitter and not being afraid to ask for a job.

I really like driving, so I drive as often as I can. Every now & then, the place I drive to is full of geeky, nerdy people. Sometimes, they join me for a drive. This is the list, in no particular order.
