From an early age I always knew I wanted a career in computers and computing. I had a plan to go to the University of Sunderland and I knew the course I wanted to take - so it couldn't have worked out better for me.
The University's placement office were absolutely brilliant and helped me get the right placement to set me on the way.
I now work for Newcastle-based Mancala Technology where I'm Head of Software Development. So it's thanks to University of Sunderland I was able to fulfill my potential."
