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, later software engineering.
In my free time, outside of computing and improving my technical knowledge, I enjoy reading popular science, philosophy and science-fiction; listening to podcasts and electronica / heavy metal; spending time with Staffies; lifting weights and thinking about politics.
