I'm Adam Spice. I live in Auckland, New Zealand, where I geek out to my hearts content.

I first discovered my geekness when I was a kid. I got my first computer - a Dragon 32 - and found that I loved writing programs on that more than I loved going outside and kicking a ball around. The geekness carried on all through school, where my friends and I would talk about all sorts of stuff, from the latest video games to how to make your computer faster.

This geekness eventually led to a long and varied career in IT, from basic support to management of departments. Which leads me to where I am now, development. The love of writing a program and having it do something never went away

So five years ago I approached my current boss and said I would like to become a software developer, he agreed and gave me my first project and since then I haven't looked back.
