Biography

My goal is to aid in the development of cutting edge technology with the potential to positively impact the way we live. I get super excited about talk of any sufficiently advanced technology and you're find me quoting Elon Musk from time to time. I study Mechatronics Engineering and Information Technology precisely so I can acquire the necessary skills to help build an exciting and promising future.

My most notable hobby is volleyball which I play competitively and frequently. I also enjoy meeting new people and endeavour to bring together bright individuals from all around Asia and Australia.

Interests & Passions

  • Python Programming
  • Web Development
  • Machine Learning
  • Problem Solving
  • Idea Generation

My favourite dinner guests would be the PayPal Mafia - founding members of PayPal, Elon Musk included, that have since gone on to create multi-million dollar companies such as YouTube, LinkedIn and Tesla.
