As Digital Development Office for Somerset libraries I research, plan and deliver new technologies to Somerset libraries. Having trained in technical theatre and worked at the Bristol Old Vic for many years, I then moved in to the education sector to teach the new coding curriculum, this has given me the skills I now uses to make Somerset libraries ready for their digital future. From Virtual Reality (VR) to Code Clubs, 3D printing to Raspberry Pi’s my role covers it all, as well as creating business training opportunities and networking events.
