I've always been fascinated with computers and what you could do with them for as long as I can remember. I was one of those kids that would take apart anything if I could get my hands on a screw driver (mind you, I was never very good at putting them back together again). In fact one of the strongest memories of my childhood was messing around with a VHS player and receiving a nasty jolt of electricity because I forgot that I had it plugged in when I attempted to cut through the power cable.
I've been an iOS developer since 2010 and in that time I have worked on a number of very different projects. Some of these projects on my own and others as part of a team. Both situations taught me a lot - it's hard to beat that feeling when you manage to overcome an issue that you have spent days on and that no one on stackoverflow could help you with. However equally great is being able to chat to a team mate for 20 minutes, learn from their experience and overcome that issue without the sleepless nights. Through these projects I've got to know some really great people who in turn were also really great developers and learnt so much from them. I've also had the opportunity to lead a few of these developers as team lead and help to build a culture within those teams.
I'm currently working as iOS Team Lead for Memrise based in London, helping to make language learning (hopefully) fun and easy.
