I'm Dan Parry. I'm the co-founder of Tectonic, a customer research company. I've been in tech for about seven years and learned a lot about myself, what I want to do and who I want to help.

I've had a few tiny ups, and much more significant downs. Like many people (knowingly or unknowingly), I've suffered from depression. It wasn't until I went to therapy that I understood that I'd had some form of it since I was about twelve.

(And if you haven't yet, you should definitely go to therapy. Yes, even you.)

I've always had a love for technology, music, games and culture. when I started working in tech in 2013, I was able to combine my love for these things into something I thought would define me.

But by using work to define me, I've tied myself to the ups and aforementioned downs. Big mistake.

I knew I had to reframe my thinking.

Then about 18 months ago I came across no-code. It's been fascinating to watch a community grow around something that I've always struggled with.

You see, I studied Computer Science at university.

And I failed miserably.

I just couldn't get my head around coding. It baffled/bemused/bamboozled [delete as appropriate] me.

But now people like me can build apps, products and services without needing to learn how to code or spending money on a developer – especially before validating the business.

So now I want to use my knowledge and skills to experiment in the space that means a lot to me:

Mental health, creativity, business, tech...and whatever takes my fancy.

Join me on this journey!
