DegreesMEng Computer Science with Cyber Security


Dan joined YSTV quite late in his first year, after being quite bored due to being stuck in isolation or lockdown due to Covid-19. He was the only person to turn up to a livestream tech give it a go session for Refreshers 2021. He then spent the rest of the summer term following Rhys Milling, the wizard of livestream tech, learning how to run livestreams.

Dan ran for Deputy Computing Director in the November 2021 by-election, losing to fresher Liam Burnand. Dan then ran for Deputy Computing Director again, this time unopposed, in the 2022 election and won.

Dan mostly works as a livestream tech or does livestream distribution but more recently has started camera operating and editing. In terms of computing, Dan mostly focuses on active directory, having recently setup a new secondary domain controller which doesn't actually quite work yet.
