Me at Google, Sydney

Hi there,you may or may not know me.For those who do,you would know how keen and passionate I am towards technology.For those who do not yet,you will soon discover how intrinsically motivated I am within the technological sphere.

I favour great User Experiences(UXs)through well laid out UI and User Research.I also acquire skills in PC Hardware and Software Servicing,Web/Software Development(see below)and Cloud Administration(DNS,web server hosting,Linux).

Two Electronic Decades

While I may have not entirely known it at the time,my first encounter with a computer interface(Macintosh LC 575,boosting a clock speed of 33MHz with 32MB RAM),which I assumed happened around 1995,was the starting point from where all my computing passion was built upon.
