When did you join iHASCO?
I joined iHASCO in November 2020 (going into another lockdown).
What do you do there?
I'm a senior software engineer, I work with the business (and sometimes clients) to maintain and build LMS features.
What did you want to do when you were at school?
Many, many things. I wanted to make models for sci-fi films. I love that these fantastic spacecraft were made from quite mundane bits and pieces.
What do you get up to when you’re not at iHASCO?
Long-distance cycling, and gardening. Allotment-ing.
Where in the world would you most like to go?
At the moment I'd love to visit Damascus.
What’s your favourite food?
Tell us something we don’t know about you…
I lived and worked in Moscow for two years after university.
Favourite book or movie?
There are many. Parasite is currently leaving a lasting impression. I've watched it twice, which I haven't been inspired to do for a while. Solaris (Stanislav Lem) is a really good read if you want your mind blown.
