Helen studied English at university, but discovered her inner geek via a postgraduate course in Cartography.
Helen studied English at Keble College, Oxford and took a postgraduate diploma in Cartography at Oxford Brookes.
Before joining Torchbox in 2004 she worked variously as a cartographer, a web developer and a programmer on an ESA project. Her work Torchbox over the years has included both development and project management, working with a wide variety of clients. Her current role is to head up the front end team, and provide front end development for various Drupal, Wagtail and custom Django sites.
Outside work her main job is being a mum, but she also enjoys reading, singing in various choirs, growing organic vegetables (when the slugs don't eat them) and attempting the Saturday Guardian crossword.
