Technology has always been a fascinating and engrossing aspect of the world, which lead me to start writing about it many years ago. I still remember building my first desktop computer back in 2008, an event that kick started my love of tinkering with PC hardware, and the time I picked up the very first Android device which got me hooked on smartphones. As well as studying electrical engineering, I enjoy gaming, watching a variety of sports, and the occasional jam on my saxophone, as well as hanging out with mates in Australia.
