Over the past years I have had a keen interest in computers and electronic communications. I was self taught until I began to study information technology at sixth form college. I completed a GNVQ Information Technology at city of Westminster College. I am currently doing a BSc in Computer Communications & Networks at the Department of Computers and Telematics within the University of Westminster. I am doing this course to learn more in this field and to attain a high level qualification. I hope to go on to specialize in telecommunications at postgraduate level.
I have worked at City University, where I had the task of authoring a set of web pages. The work that I did was not only published on the internet, but was also part of a display at the Barbican. Whilst on my placement I also had the opportunity to put together a multi media presentation.www.daixieps.com
In my spare time I enjoy authoring in html, and have put together a number of pages. I have constructed a site for an American football team. I am learning how to program in Pascal and C++ at the moment, and have written a few simple programs independently. I am also investigating the Java language. I also enjoy maintaining my multi platform network at home.
I have been a scout leader for a number of years now. This role is demanding and requires determination, but very rewarding. At college I was the Treasurer for the students union, and in previous year I was the Communications officer. As an executive officer I played a vital part in the union. I also play American football for the London Capitals. The team has a good record, and so far while with the team I have attained one national title, three conference titles, and two league titles.
I recognise that there is a big future in computers and electronic communications, especially with the recent well publicised boom in multi media and the internet. I wish to be part of that future taking computers into new areas of life, helping people to raise the standard of living.
