If you hadn’t already guessed by now, my name is Ben
jamin MacGowan. Unfortunately, I’m not related to the famous comedian Alistair McGowan, or the singer Shane MacGowan – although I have been known to be utterly hilarious and done my fair share of singing. I’m even on a number of CD’s, but you will have to get to know me better to ever hear those.
Born in Auckland, New Zealand in 1989 and living in a country 10 years behind the times, my family decided to emigrate back to Berkshire, United Kingdom when I was just 3 years old. In my opinion, I don’t think the Kiwis would have been able to cope with the cute ginger baby that I was.
Since the age of 14 I have been experimenting the web technologies, and after leaving college in 2008 I decided that the internet was the only industry I wanted to work in.
The web industry is a big part of my life. I will always be reading articles, books, twitter to get the latest information, seeing other people’s viewpoints and pushing my knowledge. I have a thirst for being the best I can be, and producing the best work for my clients.
Everything aside, I am the only ginger male blogger worth knowing.
