My name is Augustine Thorbjornsen and I have lived in Darwin my whole life. I grew up on a rural property 60km outside of Darwin with nine older siblings. My primary years were homeschooled while I completed my secondary education via distance education through the Northern Territory Open Education Centre. I especially like listening to music and learning about smart new technologies. My semi-isolated situation gave me the opportunity to balance my time socially with family, and learning about software/computers. I have always enjoyed using technology as part of my hobby interests, in areas of music, gaming and learning about programming.
