I have always had an interest in technology. I was the kid at school who had all the gadgets, when other people were saving their money to buy a car I was saving for a Pocket PC (remember them). Messing around with computers and software is what I do for fun.
I have a degree in Rocket Science (yes really), a Masters degree in Audio Acoustics and I spent 7 years working as an Acoustic Consultant. Although life as an Acoustic Consultan was interesting, it didn’t involve enough of what I enjoyed doing every day, which is playing with technology. So now I am working towards a Masters degree in Computer Science at Newcastle University and I am loving every minute.
I can’t wait to get a job in the IT industry once my degree is finished, but in the mean time I am using my experience in my previous career to start an open source project linked to acoustics and I still like to mess around writing fiction from time to time.
