A picture of me

In my spare time: laser cutting things, learning new things, working with prototyping electronics, traveling, tinkering in the workshop, drinking coffee, making music, playing slap bass, listening to 80's music, relaxing with the family, film photography, kayaking. After living in Japan for about 2 years after graduating, I came back to Australia with my wife to travel and start working towards our dream.

I have a Cert IV in IT Networking, and a Bachelor of Multimedia Design from The University of Queensland, where I graduated in 2015 with a 6.4 GPA. I also earned a Prentice Scholar and Dean's Commendation award. Winner of People's Choice at Govhack 2018 for DiscoVR with my team, Technotelecomnicom.

I have a DIY attitude and I feel that many things in life are best appreciated when you've made them yourself. It makes sense then that I've picked up a lot of skills in my life, and I want to use them to make the world a better place. From all my time and many hobbies, I've learned how to pick up almost any new skill quite quickly.
