About Me

Since childhood, I've been captivated by the inner workings of technology. Even as a youngster, I couldn't resist the urge to dismantle any electronics I could get my hands on, driven by an insatiable curiosity to understand how they worked.

At just 14, I embarked on my journey into the world of programming, armed with my first computer and a determination to learn. With self-taught VB.NET skills, I began crafting rudimentary programs to impress my friends and better understand programming at a basic level.

At 17, to channel my passion into something tangible, I enrolled in a Cert IV programming course at TAFE. However, life's twists and turns led me through various customer service roles and even an engineering apprenticeship before I found my true calling.

In 2017, I found my footing in the IT service desk space where my affinity with problem-solving and software exploration evolved. It was here that my passion for technology truly ignited, propelling me into uncharted territories of coding, development and automation.

Fuelled by a love for gaming and a desire to create, I ventured into crafting a custom computer desk case, inadvertently crossing paths with individuals who showed me that coding was more than just a career path but a very useful skill. What started as a hobby quickly evolved into a burning ambition to pursue a career in software development.

Determined to carve my path despite the absence of formal training, I immersed myself in self-education, devouring countless hours of YouTube tutorials and Udemy courses. As a result, I honed my skills by continuously pushing the boundaries of my knowledge.

Today, armed with a wealth of hands-on experience, self-taught expertise, and an unwavering passion for innovation, I stand ready to embrace the next chapter of my journey. Driven by curiosity and fueled by ambition, I am poised to make my mark in the world of technology, eager to turn dreams into reality.
