Biography

I’m from the small city of Darwin in the Northern Territory. I have always gravitated toward maths and science, as I can appreciate and understand patterns and the rules of these subjects. This eventually led me to IT, where I found I had a passion for the art of understanding how computers work, and using that knowledge to manipulate them in creative and useful ways. I would like to become a Software Engineer as I feel technology can be used to touch and enrich the lives of many people around the globe.
