Biography

I’m passionate about technology and its ability to help us confront the most difficult problems facing society. Coming from both a finance and computer science background, I hope to be involved with both my own and other enterprises in the start up space that tackle these problems head on.

Interests & Passions

  • Computer Science
  • Machine Learning
  • Mandarin
  • Finance

One thing most people would be surprised to know about me is that I play the saxophone. I studied music for 2 years at the west Australian academy of performing arts and have performed all over Australia including the Sydney opera house.
