Biography

I am interested in the future of technological developments especially in the fields of artificial intelligence, blockchain technology and renewable energy. I am studying for a Bachelor of Engineering Honours as a first step towards working in one of these areas. For half of my life I lived overseas in Laos and China and I have come to enjoy learning new languages. As the opportunities arise I enjoy keeping up my language skills and communicating with others in spoken Mandarin or Lao. I am a keen sportsman and compete socially in basketball and soccer. I also enjoy the relaxed, low key, outdoor way of life the Northern Territory has to offer.

Skills & Expertise

  • Online enterprise
  • Cross-cultural communication
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Photoshop
  • How to avoid being eaten by a crocodile in the NT

My fondest childhood memory is going fishing in the Mekong river in Laos with my friends from the neighboring village and catching an enormous catfish.
