I'm a multi-award winning DevOps Engineer, Technologist, Technical Blogger, Keynote Speaker & Neurodiversity & Inclusion Advocate.

I have spoken at Bloomberg, Google, HackAJob, BT Group & more.

After entering the tech space in 2019, I have built a name & brand in the tech industry. My advocacy work began after sharing my experience of being the only black person working for one of the largest telecommunications companies in the UK. My experience led to her writing her first blog about the loneliness in that space. This was the beginning of my journey & efforts to inspire neurodivergent people, Black people, people of colour, the LGBTQ+ community & other under-represented groups to get into tech.

As a Black, queer, woman with dyslexia, dyspraxia & ADHD, my story has also been used to educate others on the importance of neurodiversity & inclusion, what it means & the benefits it brings to teams across organisations & various industries.
In 2021, I have had my story featured in a book, "The Voices In The Shadows" which is available for purchase globally & was made available to every school across the UK.
I also sits on the Co-Production Board for a new charity, "Neurodiversity in Business" which launches in the House of Commons in March 2022. This gives me even more opportunity to help make a difference for neurodivergent minds in the workplace & in business across the UK.
