About

My bachelors from 2013 to 2016 was in Network Design & Security. Whilst focusing mainly on routing and switching from Cisco's CCNA course, programming topics included web, android and .NET development, as well as database (SQL), network programming (python) and Java.

I began my masters of IT in 2017, specialising in software development. This introduced me to topics such as project management, cloud computing, UI design, research methodologies, and more advanced programming concepts.

During 2018 I did an exchange semester to Munich as part of my masters, and enjoyed living and studying in a different country. I studied mainly practical subjects, on blockchain, P2P applications, and developing business applications. I then spent the rest of the year travelling Europe

My previous employment involves working in the IT departments at Nissan, and Tennis Australia, mainly in technical support.

Not including some Visual Basic my IT teacher in 2009 made us do, I began my programming journey in 2010, having fun writing botting scripts for Runescape. During the programming courses I took in my bachelors I realised this was the direction I wanted to go in, and continued to my masters in software development. In the previous years I have been to several hackathons and enjoyed their collaborative and 'startup' mentalities.
