I work in the defence sector, so the nature of my work is always interesting. Being a software engineer, a large part of my job is problem solving. I'm faced with a task and have to come up with a way to fix it. I work with some very talented and experienced people, each day is interesting. It’s often very difficult, but is certainly a satisfying job.


What have you done since leaving Lancaster & Morecambe College?
I attended Aberystwyth University and studied Computer Science. I graduated in 2018 and got a job working for Thales as a software engineer.

Anything else you would like to tell us?
I’m actually very grateful to LMC. I remember being a bit lost after finishing school. I wasn’t sure where I was going in life. I found the course at LMC. It was here I discovered I really enjoyed programming. This set me on my current path. I actually still make games in my spare time (when I get chance) It was the first time I actually wanted to learn. School didn’t push or motivate me in any way. Kev and Ant (the lecturers on the course) were great! They treated us all like adults and it really made a difference. There’s no doubt that LMC got me where I am today, I’m very grateful for that!
