My road in life has taken me all over.
I was born and raised in the United Kingdom.
Started attending college in Wellington, New Zealand, but I had no idea what major to pick.
Only completed a year there and ended up having to move back to the U.K. for family reasons.
I bounced around various careers, mainly in events and music management, before discovering Roadtrip Nation and participating in one of their cross-country road trips in the U.S.
Worked for media-based nonprofits and social enterprises for a number of years.
Decided to move to the U.S. permanently and discovered that not having a degree was much more of a hindrance here than back in Europe, so I decided to go back to college to finish my degree.
I loved taking the computer science (CS) classes at my local community college and eventually got accepted into the CS program at UC Berkeley.
I got hired right out of college as a software engineer at Wonolo, a startup focused on providing flexible work for the growing under-employed population.
Keep following my journey
