Biography

Perhaps evolving from the letters I would send the local council as a teen, suggesting improvements to neighbourhood traffic signal phasing, every day I consider the operation of businesses, links, and systems that surround us, thinking of how they could be improved as more profitable, efficient and beneficial. My long-term goal is to further the efficient movement of people, goods and services around the world.

 

Paired with my longstanding passion for politics, infrastructure and transportation, I aim to pursue a global career that enhances business, political, and cultural ties across borders, particularly involving the Asia-Pacific region.

 

Additionally, I enjoy learning new skills and can speak, read and write Chinese fluently.
