I have lived in Ipswich, Suffolk, all my life and have never left! Since leaving school I have worked in retail, IT support, radio and web! In my working life, I have been responsible for training apprentices and handling IT queries for hotels. I volunteer to build websites for local non-profits, one of which was for a local karate club I was once a member of! These days, I can be found on the radio when I am not building websites. I joined SBC in 2016 as a Web Developer and am really enjoying the role - I enjoy working with the team on what is, simply put, “something amazing” (that’s all I can say for now though!)
What’s your area of expertise?
I have 2! I love to build websites and broadcast! I would say, I’ve been building websites longer than I have been on air so I’m a little bit of a web guru! My area of expertise would be to combine the two but I’m not too sure that’s physically possible…
I guess you could say I’m an all-round geek but its polite not to! I live and breathe tech, music and broadcasting, and love the web!
Do you have a personal beauty tip to share?
I’m sure if you had a tip from me once you won’t do it again! A good personal tip though is drink plenty of water, sounds simple but it works so well, especially in the summer!
What is your favourite SBC product?
100% it must be the Propolis Skincare Gel, I suggested we rename it to “Miracle Gel” but it was declined…. my family love it equally as much!
Do you have a real beauty no-no or bug bear?
What goes on in your average day at SBC?
No 2 days are the same. There are a lot of aspects to building the websites, including constant maintenance! There’s always lots to do to ensure we deliver the web interface that we do!
Desert Island Disc?
Disc? I would rather take a radio with me (at least then I can tell what the weather will be like) but if it had to be a disc I would probably choose Now 67, I got it in high school!
Fish and Chips!
SBC is based in Suffolk, what is your favourite Suffolk spot?
Abbey Gardens in Bury St. Edmunds
Describe your perfect day?
A full English breakfast, a trip to Bury St. Edmunds and then a nice chilled evening in!
