Things I've Done

Software Developer

Chetwood Financial Limited

Chetwood Financial is a UK-based bank whose purpose is 'Using technology to make people better off'. We design and manufacture digital products across financial services, putting the customer first in everything we do.

I am one of three developers at Chetwood, tasked with creating and maintaining websites that are robust enough to handle a wide range of browsers and devices but still flexible enough to make core changes with ease.

BSc Computer Science

University of Sheffield

I studied Computer Science for three years in Sheffield, where I covered topics such as Computer Security, 3D Graphics, and Human Centred Systems Design.

Uni was without a doubt the best three years of my life: not only did I grow and develop as a person, but also learnt as much as I could about Computer Science and the surrounding disciplines.

Knowledge Hub

Business Comparison

In the January of 2018 I did a week of work experience at Digitonomy in Chester, in which I created a knowledge hub for their website

I extended their existing website with OctoberCMS to create a knowledge hub for people involved in the running of a business to read FAQs and articles. The pages of the site are built to dynamically update when articles are added and deleted, in order to give users the best experience.
