                        I went to college and studied motor vehicle repair work. I passed all of my exams and worked as a mechanic for a while. During this time, computers in cars were becoming the norm and they were quickly becoming more complicated. I found that I was able to deal with car, computer related problems easier than some others and it caught my interest. I took various computer examinations and then worked for Lombard bank where I would process financial and land registry information via computers and maintain the backup systems. From the bank, I moved to the motor insurance industry. I took, and passed, my Chartered Insurance Institute examinations and my roles were primarily based around computers. I created automated applications to improve efficiency and worked together with the IT department. 7 years later, I moved my employment to Humphrey & Co.
