Subject(s): ICT and Computer Science
Experience: 20+ years in the computer industry with a background in programming.
About me: I’ve had an interest in computers since the first home computers in the early 1980s. Since leaving school I’ve always worked in the ICT industry and have had experience in small, medium and large businesses. My jobs have ranged from data entry to strategic management. It puts me in the best place to relate what we are learning with real-world situations. I love to make learning fun and interesting and use technology as much as possible. Outside of work, I’m a keen cook, cyclist and gamer.
