Fundamentally open-sourceI believe that when we share, we all get more out of the code we write. That’s why I always prefer working on open-source projects.
SkyscannerBackpack is Skyscanner's open-source design system which supports 4 platforms (Android, iOS, React Native and Web). Our work which combines Design and Engineering in equal measures enables fast development and reduces effort duplication.
Software Engineering MastersI have a 1st class Masters in Software Engineering from the University of Southampton.
EPICC ConferenceEPICC is a non-profit conference for which I developed a website where delegates could reserve and pay for tickets.
Leonardo CompanyIn 2015, I joined the EWOS (Electronic Warfare Operational Support) team at Leonardo. My work there involved maintaining large .NET frameworks which supported feature-rich mission analysis tools. Close collaboration with the hardware team and our consumers was essential and demanded a strong, agile approach to development. Thorough planning, in which we were all involved, was key to our success. Throughout some 60 weeks there, I immensely improved my ability to navigate large codebases and to produce readable, manageable code myself.
Whilst working at Leonardo, I also got involved in a number of STEM activities. These included talking about industry opportunities at careers events, helping with local school projects, and delivering workshops.
