Biography

My passion for technology was developed in the early stages of my life, from learning how to use a VCR as a toddler, to programming as a teenager. I wish to venture into a career that intersects both technology and design, and my goal is to be at the forefront of website, mobile, program and gaming design in Australia. I've never seen my gender as a disadvantage in reaching my goals, and instead feel empowered by it, and would love my career to venture forward to a position where I can mentor young woman to be as passionate about technology as I am.
