Personal Profile

I like to learn new things, and am constantly driven to make sense of why things are the way they are. I strongly believe in the often quoted words of Frank Oppenheimer, “The best way to learn is to teach”, and have taken every opportunity to teach and help fellow classmates when they’ve needed help. My style of learning—understanding and breaking down the problem rather than the solution—allows me to teach and explain concepts in the way a student approaches unfamiliar topic—through discovery and understanding.

I believe cultivating a love for the subject is as important as imparting knowledge, as we are automatically receptive to what interests us. I have been involved in the field of computers since high school, with contributions to open source projects and going on to consulting with companies later through my time at University. I have a strong grasp of current trends and technologies, with an understanding of real-world and modern contexts in which they are applied. This allows me to explain topics from both an academic and industrial perspective to help students see the possibilities of the technologies they are learning.

Other than computers, my interests lie mainly in the applied and performing arts. I have performed as a singer, guitarist and a keyboardist with several amateur to semi-professional music bands over the last decade. I’m also a hobbyist pencil artist and a graphics designer in my spare time.
