Gareth Pitt-Nash is a computer scientist specializing in software engineering and development.  His broad ranging interests allow him to draw from an eclectic range of talents when working on and managing projects.

As a young boy Gareth quickly gained a keen interest in technology and in particular computers spurred by his family's background in engineering and electronics.  This interest developed over the years and lead to his decision to study computer science in college.

His skills were quickly noticed by staff at the college, leading to him being offered his first job as a part-time technician for the college.  Funded by this and other jobs along-side this one he was able to afford to study for a bachelor of engineering degree  in computer systems engineering and electronics at what is now Swansea metropolitan university.

From university Gareth re-located to Southampton after being offered work as a software engineer at Smiths Aerospace which later became part of GE Aviation where he expanded his knowlege of C#, C++, Delphi, SQL, ASP.Net and other languages while working on bespoke health and fleet usage management software systems for military aircraft. He has now re-re-located to Wales, where he was employed as a Web Developer for Creditsafe to create feature rich websites to help keep track of the financial status of any company or individual.  He then continued to diversify taking a role involving enterprise resource management and educational software with UNIT4, before becoming a senior software developer working for Hitec Laboratories in their Swansea office working on document management an risk management applications written in MVC and ASP.Net.  He has since moved on from Hitec, and is now working for ERS Insurance, a motor only/broker only insurance provider, where he is still working with .Net, MVC, JavaScript & WPF, but is also developing in Java on-top of Mulesoft's ESB system.

However, his life has not been spent with him constantly sitting in-front of a computer (although his wife might disagree), he has built many of them for friends, family and paying customers, and has also developed online CCTV systems for people to monitor their properties while abroad.

His non-computer related interests include spending time with his kids, motor-sport, having helped out at many rallies including helping run passage controls at Rallye Sunseeker, the Tempest Rally and start contol for the Forest Rally stage at Goodwood Festival of Speed, mountain biking through the Welsh countryside and a small ammount of archery among other things.
