There’s another new developer in town and we’ve made him part of Team Gooey. This week we’re getting to know Anish!
Why did you become a developer?
“I originally wanted to do design but I was never able to take the design from my head on to paper/screen, but when MySpace (R.I.P) came around, I was able to tweak some ready-made themes. At the same time I was doing a basic HTML coding module as part of my college course. This helped me to edit these themes even more, and I eventually went on to study it at uni as well. I love the creativity that developing allows.”
What excites you about working in an agency?
“The people, the atmosphere, and the variety of work. I’ve worked in a corporate environment in the past where everyday was the same and it became stale very quickly. Agency atmosphere is the best and the people are pretty laid-back.”
If you were going to have a completely different career what would it be?
“Batman. Haha… no I’d be a butcher (I think there’s something therapeutic about chopping up meat), or a F1 racer because I enjoy motor racing.”
- If he was an animal he’d be a: A Shark – they’re cool and can eat what they want!
- His favourite place to eat in Manchester is: KFC or the cinema
- If he could give his school-self any advice it would be: to stay away from school dinners!
