Biography

I am passionate about programming and ethical hacking. This has led me to studying a Bachelor of Cyber Security and Behaviour at Western Sydney University. 

As I learnt more about computers, I could understand the reasons behind security practices. I noticed however, people unintentionally creating unnecessary risks for themselves online. Hence I would like to work in the cybersecurity to make a future where security online is accessible to everyone, and awareness of security risks is second nature to people. 

Beyond computers, I also love listening to and playing/composing music, going on hikes in amazing landscapes such as the Snowy Mountains, and playing basketball with my mates.
