Quote of the day

"If you see a fork in the road inside a cave, most likely one way is right and the other leads to a dead end. But people can’t help trying both. Do you want to go up the ladder or go down the ladder?" - Cliff Cave NPC, Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver

I am a 3rd year University student studying a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Computer) / Bachelor of Computer Science (Cybersecurity) at the University of Queensland, Australia. I expect to graduate in 2025.

In addition to tinkering with computers, my interests/hobbies include:

  • Hitting the beach (Byron Bay and the Sunshine Coast are my favourites)
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (my current rank is Supreme Master First Class (SMFC))
  • Hitting the gym with the boys
  • Road trips with friends
  • Swimming for fitness
  • Long romantic walks
  • Finance (investing, stocks, cryptocurrency, etc.)
  • Video Games (I play mostly PC, but also have an affinity for the Nintendo DS)
  • Marine life and ecosystems
  • 1980s-2000s era Japanese Sports Cars (particularly the Mazda RX7's)
  • Computer Solitaire (I am a grandmaster at this)

I have a YouTube channel that covers technology and Linux. You can find it here

This site is mainly for my own personal purposes and records. I don't really expect much traffic here but if you've stumbled upon it, I hope you enjoy!

I am a big fan of the traditional internet philosophy: individuals 'owning' their own internet real estate via hosting a website vs. centralised personal information hosting on social media sites. Although it doesn't have much content (or arguably have a purpose), this website's existance is a homage to those ideals.
