About meI was a mature student at Birbeck College, University of London. After graduating I moved to Manchester and found work in a Local Studies Centre. Whilst I was there I was seconded to a digitisation project researching the history of The Bridgewater Canal and Manchester Ship Canal. During the project I started on the long distance learning course offered by LUCAS. I completed the course after returning to the Local Studies Centre. Shortly after I was able to get a temporary post cataloguing parts of The Ferranti and Metropolitan-Vickers Electrical Co Ltd collections held at The Museum of Science and Industry Manchester as was, and now known as MOSI. After the year a post for an Archivist became vacant and I am now employed fulltime as an Archivist at MOSI.
