Who I Am
I love creating things that people use and enjoy.
I’m a community manager, coder, crafter and choir singer. At the moment I’m also trying to get my 5km time under 24 minutes…
I have a lifelong interest in coding and spent many happy hours in my childhood programming my BBC Micro, using BASIC. I designed and wrote a computer game which earned me the school prize for IT.
Around the same time, I was busy learning how to use a sewing machine, making pencil cases, tops, skirts and trousers for myself. It’s cool when people ask where I bought stuff and I can respond “I made it”!
At university I taught myself HTML and CSS and built websites for my friends.
I enjoy using new tech but I’ve always been more interested in how things are made. I’ve realised that coding and crafting are my true callings.
I also love to bake and sing. Here’s one of my favourite karaoke songs:
I’m an active volunteer and currently hold leadership roles at Ladies Of Code London and The Scout Association.
