Freelance designer and developer studying
Computer Science at Cambridge University.

My name is Jake Wright. I am 20 years old and I'm currently studying Computer Science at Queens' College,
Cambridge - I'm in my final year. I design and create beautiful and functional solutions. I also make films.

About

My passion for web design began in 2004, not long after we got dial-up internet. I began by using Microsoft FrontPage - I’d make websites for made-up companies. I spent the next few years learning HTML, CSS and Javascript.

In 2006, I learnt how to program in C# and decided that Computer Science was the subject I wanted to study at university. I spent the next few years learning new skills and gaining as much experience as I could. I became proficient in PHP, worked on a variety of projects and worked as a software developer for Aspire Technology Solutions.

In sixth form, I studied Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Computing and Critical Thinking, all at both AS and A2 level. Furthermore, I studied for an AS Level in Religious Studies, completing the Philosophy of Religion and Religious Ethics modules. This was, of course, a tremendous amount of work.

A Level Results: A*A*A*A*

The hard work paid off because in 2011, I was invited for an interview at Cambridge and received an offer to study Computer Science at Queens’ College a few months later. The course is very theoretical and has given me invaluable knowledge of the principles of Computer Science as well as the practical skills needed to solve problems.
