Born Free – Douglas The Hippo


A while ago I was watching a show called ‘Animal Orphans’ starring Paul O’Grady. During one episode he visited a baby Hippopotamus called Douglas and – probably like many others –  I just couldn’t help but fall in love with him. My sister then went on to adopt him under my name. Douglas was found close to death – abandoned at just two weeks old – but is now thriving and making the transition back into the wild.

I have a strong passion for computing. In particular programming for which I am able to use a variety of languages including C++, Visual C#, Blitz Basic, Actionscript 2.0, Python and Lua. I also enjoy web-design and have some knowledge of HTML/CSS, PHP/SQL and Javascript. As well as programming I have a strong background in art and enjoy drawing in my spare time. When I’m not sat at my computer I like to keep fit by going to the gym or using my exercise ball.
