Growing up with computers and technology during their infancy, I learned from a very young age how to work and configure them; writing my first simple program in BASIC under MS DOS at the age of 5.
Working on and running the network systems at intermediate and high school, I designed and implemented my first domain based network system at the age of 15. I have since designed and implemented ICT infrastructure for numerous clients in the Manawatu, Wellington, and Auckland Regions.
