I grew up in Frome, Somerset. Then moved to Bournemouth to study for a degree in Software Engineering. I enjoyed living by the beach so much, I decided to stay in Bournemouth after Uni had finished and begin my career. Following my time at university, I worked as a software engineer for three years. I then took some time out to follow a different path..
My other passion in life is animals, I have been working at Pets at Home for the past three years, in this time I trained to be a dog groomer. I really enjoy working around small animals and it means I can constantly provide the best food/toys for my dog, Pippin and my cats, Noodle and Nacho!
In January 2019, I chose to further my education and bring myself up to date with new technologies and enrolling myself on an MSc in the Internet of Things. I also recently started a job as a technical support analyst, which I'm enjoying much more than my previous software engineering roles!
I'm currently studying a masters degree in the Internet of Things, at Bournemouth University. I chose to study this degree to further my education in an innovative technical subject. This degree covers the skill gap in technology which has recently been identified, particularly in relation to programming, data management/visualisation, and security.
My first degree was in Software Engineering. This degree taught me the theory and practice of software engineering, including production, quality, metrics and maintenance as well as computer and networking infrastructures and characteristics like flexibility, scalability, performance, resilience, quality of service and security, and design choices and implications of corporate infrastructure. It was during this degree I found my passion for programming as well as my growing interest in web development.
