During the summer of 2019 I worked as a Sales Assistant in Sports Direct. I predominantly worked in the Shoes department and was responsible for engaging and serving customers, as well as maintaining and creating displays. This allowed me to improve upon my communication and multi-tasking skills. However, I also worked in the boots department, stock room, delivery and tills. Gaining a wide breadth of experience across all aspects of retail. In my first month I was the store's highest selling sales person for that month.

Freelance Software Engineer,
Reading Buses.

During the summer of 2018, after impressing the CEO and Head of Engineering at Reading Buses with my Twitter BOT idea, I was asked if I would like to develop this idea. Using their open data API, I developed a system using C# capable of tracking all buses operated by Reading Buses across their network for any predicated lateness. When the system predicts a bus running late the system automatically generates a message, publishing this to social media; keeping passengers up to date. The system's intellectual property has since been sold to the R2P group, a software supplier of Reading Buses to further develop and maintain it.
