Throughout my whole life I’ve always had the desire to create simple solutions to present day problems. I’ve always had the passion to want to apply myself and implement my innovations to redesign technologies and live by the method of working smarter, not harder.
At the age of 9 I began exploring what the world of IT had to offer ranging from scribbling masterpieces in Paint, to learning the impacts of deleting the core system files – I enjoyed it all.
During my high school years I better refined my abilities in the form of programming, this little talent of understanding the core concept of logic and its functions gained myself multiple awards during these years including three year level based awards for IT, as well as a placement in VITTA’s ICT Achievers program which placed the twenty selected year eleven students with a mentor that offered experience within a specific field of IT.
Finally, the past four years has allowed lead me down many different sectors of IT, I’ve developed my skills in programming with multiple different coding languages, found various different and complex security vulnerabilities with some of the world’s leading innovators in information technology as well as pushing myself to branch out and apply my solutions in the form of creating websites and programs to many different clients.
As of June, 2016 I’ve finished my studies and have a degree in Computer Science from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
