Born in Sydney, my family relocated from the city up the coast to a quaint country town of Wauchope NSW where I lived for most of my childhood.
After finishing high school, I enrolled into Charles Sturt University at Bathurst to study Computer Science (Games Technology). This course satisfied my interests in a diverse range of topics related to computer gaming; particularly software engineering, graphics programming, physics, maths, and psychology. I later completed my studies after four years with honours.
For as long as I can remember I have always had a strong interest in the way mechanics and technology work. At a young age I would dismantle defunct electrical components that my dad brought home from his work and try to somehow connect them together (like trying to plug in leads into wherever they could fit) in hope that I could create my own ROBOT.
Though my childhood project didn't exactly get far off the ground, I continued to fuel my desire not only for my understanding of technology but also creating new and better technology. From this initial seed of ambition, I have discovered programming to be my most favoured task. Programming has allowed me to utilise technology how I want, where I want, and when I want it.
However my interests are not limited to only programming. I enjoy studying physics, mathematics, and how vast and truly amazing the universe really is.
When taking a break from studying/work, I enjoy many activities. Golf is my most favoured sport from first playing at age 13 but I like playing mostly any sport as well as bike riding to simply having a walk. I try to exercise as often as I can and enjoy being healthy.
