About me

A science teacher for over 10 years with a proven track record together with management experience in both secondary and primary settings. I have an interest in ecological and ethical issues with a passion for nature and landscape digital photography. In order to develop my skill base, I recently completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Web Development and Visual Design at The University of Birkbeck.

As a skilled communicator, I believe in making information accessible to everyone, regardless of age, gender, background or ability. Competent in IT, I can use the Microsoft Suite i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher, and have experience of using electronic whiteboards and related software. I am also competent in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and React and am currently learning Python.

With a passion for tennis, I am a committee member of my local club where I am responsible for website maintenance. I have also captained one of the teams.

What am I looking for

I am looking for web development roles, preferably in companies with an ethical mindset. I'm eager to develop my skills sets and help organisations develop their brands and identities using the range of skills I have to offer.

In a few months time, I intend to start a course in Data Science, so would also consider volunteering for companies looking to generate and present data around the research needs of that particular organisation.
