About Me

I'm Lloyd Rodrigues Powell, a tall chap that couldn't live without sport. Previously a keen high jumper having been fortunate enough to have represented England on an international stage, I'm currently taking my volleyball pretty serious, playing national league and coaching a local ladies team.

I'm originally from Yarm where I was brought up my entire childhood, I enjoyed studying at Teesside University where I attained a first class honours degree in Software Engineering. Since then I have worked non-stop in a .NET environment, from Nottingham to my current residence in Tyne & Wear.

I love to travel, I've been very fortunate that I've been able to get around and visit places such as Venice, Cinque Terre, Monaco, Lisbon, New York, Egypt and the Formula 1 in Hungary. There are many places left on my list and I can't wait to visit them with my fantastic wife!

I also love sport, from taking part in athletics, playing tennis to enjoying some volleyball on the beach (ideally in Portugal!). I also enjoy watching the Formula 1, the NFL and of course, the mighty Boro!

I've put together this site as a base of any mini projects I've been working on over time. So feel free to take a look around and familiarise yourself.

personal projects


Over the years I've had a few chances here and there to work on a few little fun projects!

Please keep a couple of things in mind, I'm definitely not a designer and as you can tell by the technologies used, some of these projects are ageing (and not in a vintage port kind of way).
