Some background about my career so far...

I am currently working as a Front End Web Developer for Bookatable - a major online restaurant booking platform.

Before deciding to switch careers to technology and web development, I was a reporter in London, and worked as a freelance journalist in Israel and the West Bank.

During the two years I spent split between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, I became fascinated by how I could use online photography and video to tell stories in more meaningful ways. This led me back to London to study for a masters in Digital Journalism.

My masters thesis involved using a drone quadcopter to take aerial video in the Highlands of Scotland, which was shortlisted for the 2013 BBC Student Innovation Award. I built my own static HTM5 and CSS3 website to display the work which I found to be tremendously satisfying. This started a chain of events which eventually convinced me to leave journalism and make the full transition towards becoming a web developer.

In late November 2014 I was lucky enough to take part in a highly intensive 12 week web development course with General Assembly. The course taught me how to think as a programmer and solve real-world problems with technology.
