Hi I'm Penny Churchill; I live in Hertfordshire and I graduated in 2005 from the University of Nottingham with a BSc(hons) in Computer Science. After my degree I moved to London to work as software engineer in the city. I worked as a Java and C# .NET developer at both UBS and the London Stock Exchange. Later I moved to the BBC where I worked on interactive and internet TV applications. I was the technical lead for the Wii iPlayer v2.

I had always been interested in design and more recently decided it was time to get to grips with Adobe Illustrator. This has lead to setting up on my own as a freelance website and mobile designer/developer. Please take a look at my portfoilio to see some highlights of my work to date.

I have experience with many programming languages and coding paradigms including PHP, JavaScript, Java, XHTML, CSS, Flash, C#, SQL. I am proficient in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, for print as well as web.

In my spare time I row at Broxbourne Rowing Club which keeps me fit and out of trouble! I am also their webmaster and social secretary at the moment. I have recently bought myself a shiny new DSLR and I'm teaching myself the basics of photography - watch this space to see how I get on. Judging by my current flickr photostream I have a way to go!
