Raised to love and embrace computers and technology
But I think my journey started out in my early teens making forum banners for internet games
This led to making digital graphics as a hobby
This led to undertaking a Bachelor Degree in Graphic Design
This led in to digital design projects
This led in to also making websites for clients
This led to a lot of self-studying and quickly realising I knew nothing in the field
After a few years of this, and feeling more confident, this led in to a Bachelor of Computer Science
... And led quickly to realising I knew nothing in the field
But this led to a job for an agency under the direction of a senior web dev
... And led quickly to realising I knew nothing in the field!
I take a holistic approach to my work, and strive to understand all areas of web business in hopes to understand intricacies, roadblocks, nuances, and oft-overlooked parameters (which can happen when dealing with silo'd specialists).
I currently hold a position at the University of Melbourne as a front end dev, I am always learning, striving, and improving where I can so that I can help support my own vision of a future where users have empowered, beautiful experiences on the Internet - in the hopes that one day the Internet as an avenue can grow in to a truly supportive, shared and connective tool, and move away from models encouraging consumption and complacency through inundation.
