Originally from Birmingham currently living in London for just over a year, I started working from an incredibly young age (Child Labour) at my family restaurant, my father really instilled the value of hard work in me, never gave me any preferential treatment (Nor did he pay me). Long and unsociable hours really drove me to focus on my studies which led me to study computer science at university and a masters in cyber-security.
After graduating in 2017, I wanted to get into a cyber-security role asap. Not realising how incredibly difficult it would be to get into that market, I fell into technical support roles to build on my skills. Having worked for a large company (CGI) and an incredibly small company (Ipsotek). Oakleaf Partnership seems so far, as the best of both worlds.
In my spare time, I am currently trying to regain my piano skills, having started learning at the age of 8 but stopping at the age of 22 which inevitably led to rustiness. I enjoy all types of sport ranging from badminton to F1. I also collect rare whisky’s from around the world, with my most prized bottle being a 1991 Macallan which I brought on my 21st birthday.
