About Me

I am a South African Computer Science student at the University of Cape Town. I am in my third year of studying and plan on graduating this year. Next year I plan on pursuing a post-graduate Honours in Computer Science.



I am passionate about software development and technology. My particular interests include Artificial Intelligence, Backend Development, Mobile Development and Game Development. Apart from technology I'm an avid Manchester United supporter, I surround myself with music, and I watch too many films. I don't mind a dank meme now and then as well.


My Tech Stack

I work with Java on a regular basis and am very confident with it. I have a decent amount of experience with C++. I have also worked with SqlServer, Python and C# in Unity. I have light experience with MySql, Firebase, Javascript, HTML and CSS (using the materializeCSS framework).

Technologies used include; Firebase, Javascript, Angular.js, CSS (using the MaterializeCSS framework) and HTML.
