Biography

When you love what you do, you often forget what free time is. I love the cross-over between technology and everyday life, and as a beach lifeguard, I've been lucky enough to be at the forefront of this through drone surveillance across NSW beaches. It's technology like this that gets me excited about studying Data Engineering at UTS. As a soccer referee, ski instructor, math tutor and beach lifeguard, I have been able to wake up every morning with a new and exciting task ahead of me. I'm looking forward to enhancing the profile of technology in society through mechanisms like machine learning and artificial intelligence and allowing this to improve areas such as access to education, and safety across beaches, nationwide.

Skills & Expertise
