What’s one of your favourite things about working in the business?
I appreciate the constant opportunity to learn and grow as a software developer.

We support and challenge each other to be the best that we can be, resulting in high-quality work and successful projects.
Furthermore, my manager Tom happens to be one of my oldest friends, which only adds to the positive work environment. Over our 20-year friendship, we’ve developed an excellent rapport and communication style, which enhances our work as a team. Together, we have tackled some of the most challenging projects, and I look forward to many more successful collaborations in the future.
A fun fact about you:
I went to Iceland with a friend a few weeks ago and whilst we were there our van had a few troubles on the icy roads, so we ended up sliding into a ditch and getting stuck for 5 hours. Luckily the van didn’t take heavy damage, so we were able to keep the heating on, and we killed some of the time by watching The Northman, which was topical as it’s set in Iceland.
Apart from traveling, I’m also passionate about art and have participated in numerous exhibitions. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums, including prints, paintings, and sculptures.
