Biography

I've had a keen interest in technology since I was young, initially sparked when I used the family computer for the first time. Ever since then, tech has remained one of my most enduring interests, persisting as others have come and gone. As a result I have decided to undertake a degree combining Engineering and Computer Science, as skills obtained from one field can be extremely useful in the other. When I'm not taking something apart to see how it works or studying at uni, you can often find me listening to music or longboarding through the local streets.

Skills & Expertise

  • Computer Troubleshooting
  • Electronics
  • Hard-working
  • Computer Assembly
  • Drive to learn

I’m excited about technology and the future because access to new technologies, especially in regards to computer-based design, modelling, and the ability to work cooperatively is changing the tech landscape. It's now easier than ever for innovators the world over to collaborate, working together and sharing ideas, and this is what I find exciting, as access to global knowledge is no longer as limited and the potential for groundbreaking ideas to be realised is far greater than ever, as we are no longer constrained by our physical location.
