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.
