Since I was about 7 years old (can’t remember exact age) at home I discovered computers, an Amstrad 6128. Little did I know that this would lead to where I am today.
During my early years computers were mainly a hobby and little more than a form of toy to me.
During my Secondary School years I’ve been helping fellow students with IT coursework etc, Operating Systems involved were RiscOS 3 on the Acorns and Windows 95 on the PC’s
During that I helped with some minor repair tasks and offering limited assistance to my IT Teacher.
In 1998, after I left school I went onto Farnborough Sixth Form College. During my year there I pretty much did the same during my school years, but during the final months I helped in disinfecting the computers in the classrooms where I was studying in and this is when I first my future boss.
After about several months of IT Training and other short term jobs I returned to college to take up the post of Network Technician.
