A bit about me...
From a young age I have always had an interest in electronics and technology. Inspired by my family, mainly my Grandad, I developed an interest in building different things.
My Grandad before he became interested in computers, loved working with wood, building many small cars which me and my brothers could drive. Thanks to him, I soon became interested in how things worked which is when I discovered computers.
When Windows XP was first released, my mother and father invested into a brand new computer. During this time I played Microsoft Midtown Madness and began to mess about with the new computer.
One Christmas my parents bought me a brand new laptop, which through the years developed many issues that I fixed myself, the beginning of my interest in computers and technology.
In about 2012, I began to help people with any problems they had, along that way studying ICT and developing my skills.
Through the years I dreamed of owning my own company and am proud to tell the world that three days before I reached 18, I officially registered Powell's PCs.
Having completed high school and sixth form whilst juggling the newly formed business, I managed to achieve grades needed for future plans and projects, which is where my other role in life comes into play.
At the age of 18, I joined Norfolk Fire and Rescue serving at Diss Fire Station as an on-call/retained firefighter. This new exciting challenge meant that I was serving the local community in a different type of way by responding to emergency fire calls. Following in my fathers footsteps as a firefighter. At age 19 I applied and was accepted into the Emergency Control Room for Norfolk Fire, where here I answered 999 calls and mobilised fire appliances to emergencies. The role was extremely rewarding and challenging in its own way. I always had a vision to become a whole time firefighter and finally, aged 22 I achieved this goal. I now currently serve at Thetford Fire Station, and during my time clear and off duty, continue to run Powell's PCs.
