Hello there dear readers, my name is Jamieson and I am from England. I grew up bouncing around the UK from place to place due to my parents serving in the Royal Air Force (RAF), but I spent the majority of my time between two areas, the well-known bustling capital of London, to the not-so-well-known slower-paced countryside of Norfolk.
As for my professional life, that has also been rather varied. I have worked in customer and IT support, sales roles, as well as having my own drone business, but the standouts were probably my time at the BBC and British Army. It was a great experience to be part of a production crew and see some of my hard work appear on TV. As for the British Army, that has shaped the person I am today. I have some amazing memories of traveling the world and experiencing different cultures, but also some good old character building moments such as training until near mental and physical exhaustion. I can assure you I look back on these moments fondly, but at the time, under duress, of course I questioned my life choices!
In terms of hobbies and interests, I like to maintain an active lifestyle. I keep fit either by running or going to the gym, as well as playing a multitude of sports. I guess you could say I am also an adrenaline junkie. I like more extreme activities like rock-climbing, scuba diving, snowboarding or even skydiving! I can honestly say that jumping out of a plane goes against every self-preservation instinct you have, but it’s one hell of a rush!
It’s not all go go go though. I am also a massive nerd and can easily sink into an RPG for a 12-hour stint of gaming, or even binge my way through the latest popular TV series. These days it seems that’s all we can do, but to be honest, it does not bother me in the slightest. I am looking forward to traveling a little bit more though. I bet you are too!
Well, that’s enough rambling from me! I hope that’s given you a little insight to who I am. If you have any questions, feel free to pop into the Learning Studio and ask me. Stay tuned for my next blog where I will write about my experiences of relocating to Japan. Until then, take care out there! Bye!
