Web Developer

I’m a Senior Back-End Web Developer at Kyan (a digital agency based in Guildford), working primarily in Ruby/Rails/React. While loving agency life for the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects, I’m also a hobby-acquirer currently interested in digital art, knitting, baking and snowboarding. An advocate for increasing diversity in the workplace and removing stigma around mental health issues.

Tell me a little about yourself

A conventional wisdom for someone not enjoying their work is for them to improve their work life balance. Spend less time at work. More time at life.

That all seems pretty binary.

In this talk I want to explore the work vs. life argument, how your ‘work’ becomes how you present yourself to the world, and how your ‘life’ needs to be present in the workplace.

Thanks to our partners
