Welcome

I am currently an IT Analyst at LifeScan Scotland, specialising in Software Development and Mobility applications.
My main software projects vary greatly, from large amounts of data visualisation to user information collection.

My passions lie in travelling, technlogy and music: Listening, playing, recording, producing.

About

Software Work Experience

LifeScan Scotland - Johnson & Johnson

Software Engineer Intern:

Education

First Class Honours - Audio Technology with Electronics - BSc (Hons)
Glasgow Caledonian University:
September 2010 - June 2014

The course featured a wide variety of subjects with a focus on technology and mathematics.
Each semester contained 3 modules: A technology, a mathematics and one audio/design
It included modules on UI/UX design, Java software development and MATLAB Analysis

Fourth Year Project/Dissertation:
September 2013 - April 2014

Gesture Interaction: Control in a Musical Environment
This project consisted of tracking the human body with a purpose built Arduino glove, and a Kinect video input, and then sending that information to a Max/MSP patch. Although it was aimed with an audio output, the resulting patch would allow for the control of any system.
This was mostly created in the graphical programming language Max/MSP and contained some python and a Java effect module.

Fortrose Academy
August 2004 - June 2010

Throughout school I had always enjoyed technology and music, and I enjoyed a variety of technology based subjects, until I had to focus on getting into my degree at Glasgow Caledonian University
