About Me

Hi, I’m Nick Barnes and I am a student at Edge Hill University, studying a Masters Degree in Computing. I have a passion for technology. I’m interested in the areas of Cloud Computing and Computer Forensics, and I also have an interest in Project Management.

I am a hard working, motivated, dedicated and ambitious individual who likes to work with a strategic and analytical approach. When confronted with a task or a large problem to work with, I enjoy breaking it down into smaller pieces of information, so it is much more manageable to work with -- that may also lend with my hobby of writing. When I am not studying and reading academic texts, you will find me writing for an online entertainment website, which is my current job. I also enjoy to reading, going to the gym, travelling, and socialising. When I’m not doing any of those things, you’ll probably find me nattering away on my Twitter account.

You can learn more about my experience, skills, and education in my CV, which I’ve placed a handy link to below. If you scroll further to the bottom of the page, you will find information on how to contact me.
