About

John Glassey
MA (Hons) Psychology
Dundee, Scotland

The Introduction

I recently graduated with an Honours degree in Psychology from the University of Dundee. At the moment I'm currently pursuing my passion of developing my computing skills, which include computer security, video editing, web design and learning advanced skills in various software packages such as Adobe Creative Suite and Office 2010. I am never more satisfied than when learning new skills, and like to keep on top of emerging technologies.

Early Years

When I was in my teens, I became hooked on computers and web design. In fact, when I was 16 I ran a successful online music magazine. This helped me realise the potential of the Internet, and ever since I have tried to combine my love of design, video and photography and showcase it online.

Current Work

At the moment, I am focusing on teaching myself as much as possible, and keeping my skills sharp. I am developing videos and short films in order to fine-tune my editing techniques, as well as working on web projects, in order to develop my portfolio. In my spare time, I am not only furthering my interest and skills in computing, but discovering new ways to be creative.

Looking Ahead

In addition to computing, my interest in psychology lead me to pursue a four-year Honours degree, specialising in eye-tracking, clinical psychology and language amongst other topics. The areas studied during my course have not only provided me with a great insight into the subject, but have also inspired me to think how to combine this knowledge with other disciplines, such as computer security and digital forensics.
