From London originally, I started off studying Software Development and Games Design. I then went into Sales & Marketing and had great success over 5 years. I then worked in the Energy industry from 2014 to 2022. Through that, I became passionate about electronics, renewable energy & the ‘right to repair‘ movement – so I decided to start a degree in Electronics & Electrical Engineering in Leeds in 2019.
Three years on and I graduated in May 2022, having had an absolute blast.
Currently working as a PLC Control Engineer, working towards Incorporation and Chartership. Passionate about Control, Electronics, Sustainability, and Renewable Energy. I have a YouTube channel with 2500+ subscribers where I document all my projects and studies.
