Computer and Management Sciences

http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/

The first two years of my time at Warwick were spent studying Computer Science. The course taught me about the key principles relating to the theory of algorithms, computer programming, hardware design, software engineering and the way in which humanity interacts with and is influenced by computers.

The final year of my course provided me with an education of the principles of business under Warwick Business School.

I graduated with a 2-2 BSc in Computer and Management Sciences.

Barman/Waiter

The Crown

I have worked at the Crown for several years during my University holidays. At times my experience has allowed me to take over the role of floor-manager when my employers needed me to do so. This involved directing a team of waiting staff and taking responsibility for the experience of the guests.

Audio/Visual Development Assistant

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE)

During my period of working at SCEE in my gap-year, '24: The Game' was produced (basedupon the television series '24'). My duties were varied and included such tasks as videoediting, audio editing, creating batch programmes to encode video, bug fixing within thegame and testing. I learnt much about the processes of software production at a commerciallevel and about working in a professional environment.

Other Qualifications

In 2006 I took part in the Rotary Club Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) scheme. During the week-long course I learnt a great deal about working as a team and the nature of leadership. It was a very positive experience and culminated in making a presentation to the Rotary Club of St. Ives (my sponsors) at one of their meetings.

I have also partaken in volunteer work at Spring Common Special Needs School in the past, assisting the students with their learning.

Interest

In my spare time my passion is martial arts. I have competed 5 times at an amateur level in Thai Boxing (Muay Thai) and gained my 10th Khan qualification (of 10 possible grades) this year. I also study Kali (a Filipino martial art) and grappling arts such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Combat Submission Wrestling.

In-between all this strenuous activity, I enjoy reading and the exposure to different cultures and food that travel entails.
