About Me

Based in Manchester, UK, I graduated from the University of Reading with a First Class degree in Information Technology. I am passionate about utilising digital technologies, multi-channel experiences and business transformation.

My professional background lies in the realm of digital where I work as a Digital Business Integrator at Elanco Animal Health, where I am primarily responsible for driving multi-channel experiences and leveraging digital technologies we have invested in throughout EMEA, as well as local IT account management for various countries.

Outside of work, I run my own website about The Sims video game franchise - which has provided me with a unique digital background. I also design websites and help with digital strategy for clients of all backgrounds and sizes.
