Jack Conover
Network Engineer

During a Computer Games Design course in college late 2012, Jack discovered his passion for computer hardware & learning about how the hardware works and interacts with the world around us.

Since then, it has pushed him to build his own computer and further modify it. Creating issues and fixing it all over again, which makes IT Support feel almost like a natural role for him to fall into. Outside of work it’s rare to find Jack not staring into the abyss of a screen, deeply indulged in a video game, as a self proclaimed pro. "If I’m not gaming, I’m either; sleeping, in the pub or at the cinema, letting my hair down more so than it already is!"
