I’m part of the Positive People Somerset project. We work with people who are out of work to help them improve their IT skills and build their confidence in using digital technology.
Working for an ethical organisation on a project that can make a real difference in helping people to improve their digital skills that are now an essential part of everyday life.
I started work as a computer programmer in the days when we had mainframes! I moved into IT applications management and managed a variety of technical teams before changing direction to work in the voluntary and education sectors. Before joining Cosmic, I was working in a prison, teaching prisoners IT skills.
I learnt to play the trumpet aged 8 and have played a variety of different instruments in bands, groups and orchestras ever since. I can often be found playing the tuba in my spare time!
