Kelvin

1. What are your hobbies and interests?

In my spare time, I like to listen to music and watch movies/TV shows at home. I also like to go camping, crabbing, and hanging out with friends on the weekend.

2. What do you bring to Longevity Graphics?

I have worked as a web developer for a few years now. During this time, I have had the opportunity to work on many interesting projects. My goal with each project is to create a website that the client is proud to share with their friends, family and of course, clientele.

3. Why did you get into the industry?

I chose to pursue Computer Sciences in University because I knew I was passionate about working with computers. The more I studied computer programming, the more I loved it. It’s like playing a game – you are instructing the computer to follow your command to achieve the desired goal.

4. What is your favorite part of the work you do?

My favourite part of the work I do is being able to dive into interesting projects. I like to keep myself up-to-date with modern web technology to always improve my programming skills.
