Our team is made up of three like-minded individuals who love nothing better than to enjoy a few cold beers and talk tech! We have a shared vision to make Humans of Code a really great organisation that IT professionals can come together, collaborate and learn from each other.
Looking back, this was without a doubt, the best (and most terrifying!) thing Iʼve ever done as it has completely changed my life for the better. However the transition from knowing my job inside out, to the uncertainty of retraining and not knowing if Iʼd be able to find employment afterwards was a massive struggle both mentally and emotionally.
I believe the tech industry should be as inclusive and accessible as possible so that tech enthusiasts from all walks of life can share in the creativity and energy for which our industry is so well known.
I am an advocate of diversity and inclusion within the workplace and genuinely want to help and support anyone who is keen to develop within the IT sector. I provide sound career advice, workplace guidance, business preparation and support for individuals to build successful futures within the IT industry.
I've been interested in innovation from a very young age - inspired by films such as Wargames and Short Circuit. A lot of my childhood was spent in the pursuit of creating software and the dream that what started by typing "10 CLS" into our family ZX81 might one-day grow into a program that could save the world from killer robots or some such.
As an adult I'm lucky to enjoy an incredibly fulfilling career in tech - inspired by films such as Hidden Figures and The Imitation Game. I maintain my childlike enthusiasm not only for technological innovation but also my huge admiration for the people behind it. A diverse community who are incredibly hard-working and talented - but not infallible - and sometimes in need of support, recognition and advocacy. The real humans working to create all this code.
