Hi, i'm Nathan Ayling
Hi, I'm Nathan Ayling. I worked in Marketing for almost 4 years, working as a Junior Developer for one of the top Pet Insurance companies in the UK (Animal Friends Insurance). Working within the Technical Team, with both a Senior and Intermediate Developer. Currently I’m working for a top Pensions company (Rowanmoor) where I have been working on Front-End Development or internal systems as well as maintaining their Wordpress website which I didn’t help build. However, my current project which I’m working on is creating Rowanmoors website responsive from a brand new design from the in-house Graphics Designer.

iOS Mobile App and Game Development
I've only recently started to get into iOS App Development to create small games and applications for the iPhone and iPad which is fun. With a few apps in development, currently have one on the App store. However, if your not like me a geek and play World of Warcraft then it won't make much sense. http://www.itheorycraft.com
PC and Console Gaming
Big gamer geek! Previously an Xbox Nut, recently converted PS4 Fanboy! However, PC Gaming is and has always been my number one choice with the ability of custom built gaming PC's to put gaming to a whole new level. I used to have a gaming site (onegamer.co.uk) which is still up but very inactive for the last couple of months due to a new revisioned version in development to simplify the design and content presentation.
Affiliate Marketing & Web Development
Just like in work, outside of work I always have many little personal side projects on the go, with 5 currently in development. Most of the sites are small niche Affiliate Marketing sites. With a couple un-related to Affiliate Marketing, but are just personal web applications.
Movies and TV Shows
Everyone loves Movies and TV Shows and I'm no exception! Got to love the odd bit of entertainment when just chilling out! I have also tried reading books. However, I'm still learning to read so for now, it's taken a back seat..
Sports and Fitness
When I'm not digging into that quarter pounder cheese burger from McDonald’s, or the huge slimly pizza from Dominoes or even that tasty chicken from KFC, I actually do fitness! I enjoy mostly every sport, with a few exceptions. But to keep in shape (or try to) I do weight training and go for the casual run everyday almost!
Socialising with Friends
Just like most normal people... I like socializing with Friends and Family, whether it's to go our for a drink or just anything which is fun!
