I’m a Lecturer and Technician, with a background in computer networking and light and sound operations.

I started working on light and sound when I was 12 helping out with a family run disco company. I slowly developed an interest in them and progressed from support when needed, to performing lighting design and audio mixing on my own. Since then, I have helped semi-pro drama productions in my local town and provided wedding receptions.

My networking experience comes from an apprenticeship which included qualifications in both Cisco and Microsoft. I then took my networking and IT experience and began working on large screen displays utilising NDI to connect panels and map images to the screens. After supplying panels for ESL I developed an interest in esports that led me to the university.
