Hello, I'm Connor the founder of Eager Amoeba®.
I'm Sheffield born and bred and proud to be a Yorkshire lad. Whilst growing up I've always had a passion for film and media, I even used to ask my parents to tape adverts for me as a toddler and watched all of the “making of” special features I could get my hands on.
During my teenage years I managed to get a copy of Macromedia Studio MX 2004 (now Adobe Creative Cloud), with which I used to create some rough websites and flash games. One of my dreams as a child was owning my own website (now I own several and manage a few servers!).
Upon leaving school I studied business, photography, psychology and media at Hillsborough College. I also manage to get an internship at a small media company called Mash Production.
Whilst reading the Paul McKenna book “I can make you rich” I got the idea to turn my passion of film-making and flash games into a business. I spoke to several advisors about starting my own business, through the services available to me in college and began the groundwork that would develop into Eager Amoeba®.
In 2011 I left college and after applying for several jobs I wasn't getting anywhere, so I took the plunge and became self-employed. With the interest I had gained by creating websites and films as a hobby I gained my first client.
Since then I haven't looked back.
