Born in Scotland some time ago in the last millennium. Left school with no qualifications but have always worked in a technology related job, usually involving fixing technology of some kind. Completed my degree and most of my qualifications later in life. For the past twenty years I have worked in FE as a College IT Lecturer. In 2019, I changed roles and became the senior IT Technician at the same college.
