I studied IT at Swindon Academy sixth form and went on to join the Swindon cluster as IT/Media Apprentice Technician.
For me it was never enough to go to work and get a paycheck for my trouble, i had to know what i did helped someone, that what i did mattered, before i was here i worked in a betting shop, easily one of the most harrowing and soulcrushing places ive seen, so when i got the opportunity to make a living supporting the education of people only a little younger than myself, i took it without question, and i am improving not only professionally but personally too.
I'm a person who loves tech and getting his hands dirty so being in IT is great, on top of this I'm in media, meaning I handle productions such as theatre shows and band performances. I'll be honest, building and maintaining the school network as well as putting together all the technical aspects of a good show is bitter work, but when it all works together as it should, the results are more than worth it. The feeling of satisfaction when all the gears mesh together perfectly is indescribable.
