Currently I am working to develop the next generation of lighting control systems at Avolites.
Recently I have been working on Synergy, a ground breaking platform that integrates video and lighting to allow designers to create a more natural and immersive effects.
Find out more about what we can do with the power of synergy here.
Loughborough Students’ UnionSeptember 2015 – July 2018
As a Production Manger at LSU I was responsible for organising many of the events at the biggest student venue in the UK. This ranged from live boardcast of sporting events such as LUDC to lighting the biggest names in Drum and Bass at DBE.
Organisation and time management were critical, especially while balancing a busy work schedule with my degree.
Feed the Beast
September 2012 – March 2016
I joined Feed the Beast while it was still in it’s infancy as their first paid employee. I worked with my team to shape a product that took us from a startup with approximately 100,000 users to a market leader in a matter of months.
By July 2015 the application had been installed on over 10 million systems worldwide. I facilitated the merger of the company into Curse Inc which today is a subsidiary of Amazon.
July 2016 – July 2017
At Magma I learnt a lot about building quality software in various environments including industrial control, healthcare and travel booking systems.
Today I use this experience building bespoke software for events and in my work at Avolites.
September 2014 – July 2018
I graduated with a first-class honours in computer science from Loughborough. This was when I started my journey into bespoke live events with my final year project being a lighting control system designed to remove the need for dedicated hardware. My background in software programming gives me the possibily to create bespoke solutions to problems that can’t otherwise be solved with off the shelf software.
