I am a mixed bag
of Computer Science, IT Infrastructure Engineering and Software Development.


From maintaining complex mission-critical IT infrastructure to making software, I am passionate about applying technology to solve problems.

I am currently a MSc Research Student at the University of York in the Department of Computer Science, and employed in the NHS as a Clinical Technologist.

As an IT Infrastructure Engineer I enjoy the challanges that maintaining complex systems bring. As a Software Developer I enjoy making things to solve real world problems
