After being a chess player for 10 years, I couldn’t believe I found a chess related role near Plymouth. Although chess was more a hobby, it was still a passion of mine! For this role I managed all social media accounts, Google Analytics & Google Adwords, created marketing campaigns and ideas, supported worldwide events, and improved website UI from customer feedback.

BSC Digital Arts & Technology
DAT covered a range of topics from Graphic Design to Website Development. I also learnt about Arduinos and Raspberry Pis! This was a great course for me due to loving tech and design. I graduated with a First Class Honours.
2012 – 2014
A-Levels: Graphic Design (A*), Photography (A*) & ICT (C)
I chose these A Levels as I was very passionate about them and wanted to learn more. Photography was very creative and I loved using real film development techniques. I created a human sized piece for my final project as I liked to push boundaries and do something different. Graphic Design was new to me, but I quickly picked up the Adobe Suite and a love for Typography. ICT was one of my stronger subjects, although it was mainly Microsoft Programs.
