I’m passionate about psychology technology, comedy, and various other things ending with a Y.
On this site, you’ll be able to find my various blog posts on these topics, find out more about me, and also see my more artistic endeavours.
If you wish to discuss any of the above with me, feel free to drop me a line, or reach me on the social media pages linked on this page.
Born in 1992, in London, I have always had an affinity and natural passion for the two above fields.
With regards to technology, I have attempted to be creative from the start, and I began by developing [horrendous looking and seldom-visited] websites on my first home computer while I was in primary school. As my skills and knowledge broadened, and with the advent of Web 2.0, I was lucky to be able to not only design websites for people and businesses, but also write on the subject of technology for a number of review sites, blogs [including my own!], and content houses.
Despite always being interested in behaviour and the mind, it took studying Psychology at Sixth Form for me to be truly ‘bitten by the bug’, and I haven’t looked back since. I proceeded to spend three years studying at the 2009 Times Higher Education University of the Year winning Teesside University. As part of my BPS accredited, BSc (Hons) Degree, I completed a dissertation which sought to explain the diversity in views and potential stigma towards self-harming behaviour, using the ‘qualiquantilogical’ research method of Q-Methodology. I presented at the inaugural Teesside University Undergraduate Research Conference, and won third prize for this piece of research, shortly before graduating with a First Class degree.
Research remains high on my agenda, and if I’m not participating in studies online, I can often be found keeping up to date with current research in my favoured areas. I am always happy to participate in or collaborate on pieces of research, so please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.
As part of my current position as a Support Worker for a supported housing provider in London, I have been able to promote another one of my passions [political choice and empowerment] by running hustings events in Hammersmith, Westminster, and Kensington to ensure that individuals were informed, empowered, and encouraged to use their vote in the 2015 UK General Elections. These events received press coverage from various news outlets, and were well-received by attendees.
