How did Solent help prepare you for your career?

Solent prepared me to be an innovative and creative thinker and helped me gain the core skills of working within a professional environment. The entrepreneurial focus at Solent really geared me up and pushed me towards starting and running my own business.

Favourite Solent memory?

That’s quite a hard one as there were so many – from the technology champions recruitment and events, to the Hackathon that one of my lecturers ran, the British Conference for Undergraduate Research (BCUR) event I presented work at, working with my classmates ... I had so many! I also graduated with a first-class honours degree and had the highest grade in computing for that graduation year.

This course is for you if you want to explore all disciplines involving technology.

Tell us your career story so far

After graduating I continued with my freelance work in areas including web development, app development, UX/UI design and training. I also became director of the umbrella innovation company, Remiam Ltd using a variety of technologies and working with web, mobile and smart home devices to follow the new exciting trend of the Internet of Things. A recent product we developed is an app called ‘Instarama’ which creates panoramic images for Instagram. I’m now working with a variety of clients around the world and going to a variety of networking events across the UK, providing products and services to clients.

A typical working day for me is managing two businesses, liaising with my clients, searching for new clients and creating innovative products – oh, and the occasional Starbucks!

Any tips for others wanting to follow in your footsteps?

My number one tip is to be passionate about the technology industry and you will reap the benefits later.
