About Me

Hi, my name is Christian Innerbichler a software engineer specialising in PHP and Laravel based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom.

I would consider myself one of the lucky people in the world who has the opportunity to have a job that is also their hobby. I love to be able to create something new while being challenged at the same time and have the compulsion to learn something new whenever possible. Luckily being a software developer ticks all the boxes.

Some of my other hobbies while not developing include gaming, mainly Strategy and RPG, travelling and keeping fit. But my biggest passion in life outside developmet is Scuba Diving; whenever possible I love to dive in the United Kingdom and around the world. I currently hold my Open Water and Advanced Open Water PADI dive certifications, working towards Master Scuba Diver.


A Brief History

I currently work for MBL Solutions located in Cramlington as a Lead Software Engineer.

Prior to that I had also spent 8 years working as a Reproduction Artist and Mac Operator dealing with specialist printing and large format digital printing for Sugarfayre Ltd.
