What I do at Q2Q:
For our E-commerce customers, for example, transferring data to and from SQL for sales processing and stock control and product updates. I also get involved in data integration projects.
Simply put, I optimise processes to ensure our clients are maximising efficiencies and making the most of the technology available to them.
Background and Achievements
I played trumpet from the age of 5 with the aim of being professional. After 1 year at Uni I got headaches within seconds of starting to play and no one could find the answer. I therefore needed to find a job and started work in an office using spreadsheets to report data for customers, in those days mainly typed up. This led to my current job at Q2Q and after getting the job set off on a steep self-teaching curve, I found I could work with computers and do what needed to be done.
My greatest achievement is my 3 kids who have all flown the nest and I am proud of them all.
Hobbies and Interests
My hobbies are music either performing, listening or composing. I play Double Bass and Piano. I also enjoy going for long walks.
I enjoy remote locations, especially in Scotland away from technology.
I can listen to a short piece of music once and play it back.
Playing Double Bass, listening to music, Muppets
I enjoy a vast range of music and have never had a favourite band.
