A: My typical day at work involves developing Android apps using Xamarin.

Q: How did you decide that you wanted to be a part of your industry?

A: I decided I wanted to be part of this industry when I went to Bournemouth University. It wasn't until final year though that I decided I would like to make mobile applications.

Q: What do you enjoy most about your industry?

A: I like the fact that is always evolving and moving forwards. Plus everyone is very supportive with many meetups available to go along to.

Q: Since starting your job, what's your greatest achievement?

A: Since starting at Rarely Impossible, my greatest achievement is making an entire section of an application by myself without any input from anyone else in the team. Its made me realise how far I have come.

Q: What was your first job?

A: My first job was a sales assistant in WH Smiths.

Q: How are your company's Christmas parties?

A: They are very different to what I have experienced in my other jobs. Last year we went bowling, played laser quest and then went for a meal.

Q: What was the best advice somebody gave you?

A: The best advice has come from my boss at Rarely Impossible and that has been, "To get to success, you will fail many times. But use these failings to learn and move on".

Q: What would you name the autobiography of your life?

A: It would be something like "Always learning" as that's what happens so much!
