I'm an IT professional based in England, currently working in IT Security.  I've worked in IT since I was 13, rebuilding my school's network from an RM solution to a vanilla Windows domain with a couple of friends.

Since then I've worked in a number of different roles including desktop technician, network manager, network & security engineer and became a Deputy Senior Information Security Officer in 2020, working in local government.

I have a Masters degree in Professional Computing (dissertation here) from Staffordshire University, for which I self-studied at home over four years.  Having not gone to university as an undergraduate that was certainly an experience - both enjoyable and frustrating at times.  Above all, getting my Masters showed me I could teach myself and study.
