Biography

I enjoy travelling and exploring new cultures, having lived across four continents since 2013. My love of China, in particular, extends far beyond learning the language, taking an interest in everything from their history to political system and closely following current affairs such as China's activity in the South China Sea. I enjoy learning new skills; learning Spanish while studying in Mexico for example. I am a passionate musician, playing flute for the past 12 years as well as piano and ukulele. I love sports - running, cycling, and swimming on a weekly basis, and am a ski instructor.

Skills & Expertise

  • Chinese history, culture, and language
  • Mathematics and physics
  • Music - listening and performance
  • Electronics
  • Travel

When I was eight I wanted to grow up and be a pyrotechnician. Following work experience in the area as well as in the areas of engineering, research science, teaching, ski instructing, and banking I have learnt that I want to make a difference and change the world.
