Biography

From a young age, I was interested in engineering and pursued self-education in the areas of code and robotics, a passion I gained through my involvement in technology such as Amazon Alexa and Lego Mindstorms. This was also enhanced by my online schooling with Aurora College. I have been heavily involved in working with Amazon AWS in the field of DevOps to create programs that focus on the automation of tedious tasks. One of my main interests in mechatronics is in the field of automated robotics and technology to further look into the use of exoskeletons for the disabled.

 

Beyond my studies, I am passionate about soccer and soccer refereeing, I'm an advanced adventurer scuba diver and have progressed to a senior black belt in Goju Ryu karate.
