More about me

Strategic thinking. Understanding of software and engineering. Listening. Translating between vocabularies (e.g. engineering to passenger) Task analysis. Story-telling. Research

Had an excellent woman teacher on a programming course. Had someone who told me that the job I now do existed as a thing. My partner who looked after my daughter while I came to London one day a week to do the course. Meet-ups to discover more.

I would have done engineering or Psychology as a degree
