Biography

In a modern world of globalization, I understand the need for innovation and development of technology in the Australian market. I have set the goal to use my entrepreneurial skills and passion for technology to build a start-up tech company from the ground up and hopefully one day expand the company globally. By studying a double degree in business and information technology, I believe I will be able to position myself to reach these goals. My hobbies include basketball, rugby league, solving rubix cubes and developing investment strategies for my own capital. My idols are Elon Musk and Warren Buffet.

The best advice I’ve been given is to never give up on my dreams and to work as hard as I can to reach them.
