Biography

I have a special interest in the development of video games and interactive experiences, and how they could be designed and innovated in ways that can help improve society. In particular, I would like to pursue research into the field of haptic and VR technologies, and explore how this technology could be used in both physical and mental therapy fields.

I also aspire to create games that challenge the user's perception and thinking, making them consider life from the perspectives of others. In the long term, I want to help others and inspire change in people through my various projects.

Beyond my career ambitions, my everyday hobbies include drawing and developing my digital 2D & 3D artistic skills, listening to (and occasionally creating!) music, playing videos games, binge watching Youtube and Netflix, and getting lost in contemplating the various ways I can make my projects a reality
