About Me

I am a Brisbane based Master of Information Technology student studying externally through the University of New England whilst concurrently working. I have been a seasoned professional in the optical industry for a few years, working as an Optometrist in a multitude of optical practices and in various team environments.

I am now making a foray into the software development and information technology industry. The process of designing and programming a digital product from start to finish has always challenged and delighted me ever since I was young. I like clean, functional code, meaningful commits and visual designs that subvert expectations.

In my spare time, you will find me testing my wits out at a new game, reading a book - both fiction and non fiction - or travelling to unchartered territories around the world.
