    Hi, My main services are as titled, although I am a fast learner and am willing and able to meet any non-expert level requirements for other types of work. I'm an extremely thoughtful and understanding person, who truly wants to find a way to help as opposed to earn. Analytical and mathematical: + I am a young analytical individual with experience across a range of fields, from attempting to build my own startup, to working as a Data Analyst, to performing research at an Investment Research organisation. Innovative: + My two standout achievements are winning a startup hackathon in November 2013 and winning a poster prize for the presentation of technical scientific research in my degree. Inquisitive: + I enjoy tinkering around with technology and programming, and am eager to teach myself new tricks from ANY discipline to get the job done. I've enjoyed exploring areas from business and negotiations to behavioural sciences and media during my spare time. Integral: + I am extremely hard working to a deadline and relish the challenge of meeting (and with the right incentive, exceeding) expectations. Receiving top grades whilst at school, I am a UK graduate in Physics from Durham University and am currently living in London where I was born and raised. I am looking for new projects to challenge myself and to help people using my skills whilst I seek a new full time job.
