How long have you been part of the team at Shape?

I've been at Shape for around 5 years now. I bagged a couple of weeks of work experience at the end of my first year at Salford Uni and from then on, well what can I say, they couldn't get enough of me!

What's your favourite aspect about working at Shape?

Oooooh I do love the banter that we have. Never short of a good practical joke in here, whether it's putting 5 teaspoons of coffee in Mikes brew, or adding questionable words to Adam's code! But once they are over we do get on with our work, promise.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

90% of the time you can find me either at Manchester Aquatics Centre smashing out a ruddy solid swim session with Manchester Triathlon Club, in the middle of the Peak District on my bike trying to find new Cafes, Coffees and Cake, or down by the rivers and canals running with my pals and eating Jelly Babies . The other 10% of my time is assigned to eating and napping.

So, you compete in Triathlons, are you any good?

I'm alright yeah! I've only been taking it seriously for a couple of years but seem to be improving in every race. Though I am about to begin the comeback of all comebacks after breaking my collarbone in my last race! That was not a pleasant experience I can tell you that.

Which project was most satisfying for you to work on?

For me, I got a lot out of working on Minix. This was a project that ran smoothly from start to finish and something I had control of through both the Design and Development phases of the project. What made this such an enjoyable project was the clients

Why do you think clients should choose to work with Shape?

Because there's no two ways about it, we're awesome! I think one of the best qualities about us in all honesty is our friendliness. All of us are just really nice people who enjoy what we do here.
