Welcome to WestgarthsWeb, my online home! If you’re reading this, hello, i’m Steve Westgarth, MD @ Footsqueek, #developer and #socialgeek who enjoy’s making new cool things! If you’re wondering who I am, there’s my pic on the left!
I guess if you’ve clicked on the about link you probably want me to tell you something about me – what could you possibly want to know? I’ve lived in Chester since 2005; originally I come from a small town called Consett, near Durham – it’s famous for Steal and Crisps, not much else. I originally came to Chester to study Computer Science at University, prior to that I lived and worked in Northland, New Zealand.
Back in 2007 I was lucky enough to be President of Chester Students’ Union before working at the University of Chester for 4 years managing a software development team. In 2012 I embarked on a new project; creating Footsqueek (The Mobile App Company) – i’m now the MD and am enjoying working with schools and other educational establishments in the North West demonstrating ways that Technology can be blended with Learning to enhance attainment and achievement.
If you’ve read this far well done, hopefully something grabbed your attention? If it did drop me an E-mail or find me on Twitter / Facebook. Also, you might be interested in checking out the Footsqueek Blog especially if you’re a teacher or are interested in education.
