I’m Anthony Rome, a web designer, passionate about the web, happily building, breaking then rebuilding most things PHP and MySQL.
I have been working in Web Design for around 12 years and have worked for a few web design companies which is where I learnt most of what I know.
My passion all began when I was studying Computer Science towards my BTEC National Diploma at TCAT College. Amongst different IT elements, Web Design was the topic I really looked forward to. I can remember using notepad and the very first version of Photoshop to create a web page for the college intranet. These tools are considered primitive in comparison to technology today.
After college I was working in retail and then eventually moved into a full time IT position at EPSON. I was here for two years, first year was educational but the second year was mostly spent falling asleep at my desk. Who could blame me, I had to repeatedly advise customers how to change ink cartridges or how to do a manufacturers reset on the machine or find the serial number. My thirst for getting into Web Design grew!
I left EPSON and found a job for a small Web Design company called Source Design. A friend from EPSON was the manager and put me forward for the job. This was my first opportunity to really get stuck into HTML, PHP and MySQL.
Since then I have moved forward to other Web Design companies and expanded my knowledge of Internet Programming Technologies.
I continue to learn new technologies and offer them to my own customers where I have formed Silver Marbles Ltd. I have been as a self employed web designer for 12 years. Silver Marbles is a limited company since September 2010.
