I graduated from Manchester in 2002 with a degree in Psychology that included an extra year studying in France. Although I loved my subject, I knew that a career as a psychologist wasn’t for me. I had always wanted to live outside Europe and learn a third language, so I went to work as a volunteer in Honduras. It was one of the hardest and one of the best things I’ve ever done. I then returned to the UK to complete a masters conversion in Computer Science at York in 2005.
From there I joined Accenture and spent eight years working across multiple industries including government, retail, telecommunications and international development. I specialised in technical architecture for large scale custom applications, but have also worked in a variety of other roles including change management, solution architecture, security and project management. One of the highlights of my career was leading a microfinance rollout across rural Kenya, where my only disappointment was in not having enough time to master Swahili. I joined Berkeley in 2014 because I wanted to continue this variety and range of clients working with top calibre people.
Outside of work I can often be found subjecting friends and family to the calorific excesses that result from being an amateur pastry chef. Sometimes I get round to offsetting this by hiking up the side of a mountain in Snowdonia or the Lake District (usually in the driving rain).
