I have been a full-time freelancer for the last 5 years, before that I worked for:
- FunderFinder – developing internal databases and business systems
- North West Arts Board / Arts Council England – as an IT Officer
- Malawi Ministry of Health – improving health management systems
- Oxfam – looking after a supporter development system.
For anyone who’s been around long enough to remember, I also worked for Soft Solution Ltd on various projects under the Manchester Host and Poptel umbrella, as a programmer for Co-operative Retail Services, and as a worker/director with Grass Roots Books Co-operative.
I have an MSc in Computer Science and Microsoft MCSE certification. I also have BA (Hons) in Sociology, a Post-graduate Diploma in Librarianship, and a ballroom dancing certificate. I've also completed a graphic design course with Open College of the Arts, and I'm a kitchen table printmaker. No experience is ever wasted.
