I knew straight away from the vibe of the place, the people here, the lecturers and the staff; it was definitely the place for me.
My best memory of working at Spark? I have so many! We used to do OBs across the city, we used to do daft shows. Because we were such a small team, we were all very close-knit, working until one or two o'clock in the morning on a Wednesday or Thursday night. Trying to make Spark work and sound good, that's what I remember. Being with people in the office and just having a really good laugh.
The thing I miss the most about Sunderland is the people. I genuinely have never met a nicer bunch of people.
My advice to any students that are thinking of coming here is just embrace it, make the most of it, but you really do need to work hard. Spark's here, you can make all your mistakes and learn your trade right here, and that's a great opportunity.
Turf Moor is definitely my happy place, but I reckon the University of Sunderland comes up there – top five, definitely! I learned my trade here, so it's definitely a happy place."
