Biography

As far back as I can remember I have had a passion for computers. This has evolved into a love of electronics, computer science, and all things tech in general. In partcular, I am interested in cyber security and networks, which works well with my second half of my degree, law. My aim is to work for the AFP or ASIO in cyber security, digital forensics, or the digital flavour of counter terrorism. As the digital world grows around us, it is important to secure the devices we use in business and in our own homes – I am motivated by understanding how this works and how it can be improved.
