Ange studied Advertising and Media at University. After graduating, Ange worked as a Digital Account Executive for an advertising integrated agency, and this is where Ange really got involved with tech. Whilst working at the advertising agency, Ange was introduced to Digital Advertising, where they helped with content management and developed digital ads.
