I was born in 1988 and grew up in south/central London. I was educated at Wimbledon College (2001-2006) and studied philosophy at the University of Warwick (2006-2009).
Later I trained as a primary school teacher, completing my Postgraduate Certificate of Education at Middlesex University (2011-2012). I taught in schools throughout south London for several years and then taught myself how to code and switched to web development. I have worked as a developer in both a salaried and freelance capacity. I now work exclusively as a frontend software engineer in Scotland.
In my free time, outside of computing and improving my technical knowledge, I enjoy reading popular science, philosophy and science-fiction; learning languages; listening to podcasts and electronic/heavy metal music; spending time with Staffies; lifting weights and exploring Scotland.

I work as part of the frontend team on NLG Studio, Arria's flagship software. NLG Studio replicates the human process of expertly analyzing and communicating data insights by dynamically turning structured data into written or spoken narrative at scale and at machine speed. I primarily work with TypeScript and Angular.
