About Me!

I am a Final Year Undergraduate Computer Scientist studying my BSc(hons) at the University of Glasgow.

I have a passion for tech, this passion drives me towards improvement, not only in the work I do, but in all aspects of my life. Due to my analytical brain, I am a quick learner and problem solver, which is key for my studies as a Computer Scientist.

Not only have I been a part of many projects during my studies at University, but I have also participated in multiple Hackathons. I have won 3 Hackathons to date and hope that this number will grow. In my free time I also partake in small personal projects, which I am hoping to do more of during my career in Technology.

I have been performing in musical theatre since the age of 6 and have been on stage as a solo/principal performer as well as chorus member at some of Edinburgh's largest theatres.

I am currently an active member of the Glasgow Musical Theatre Society (Cecilians). Taking part in theatre has developed my confidence in working with others and has also enhanced my ability to perform well under pressure, especially when singing solo parts to audiences of over a thousand people.
