Hi, I’m Alex.

I'm studying Computer Science at UQ, majoring in Cyber Security, having previously studied towards an Electrical & Computer Engineering degree, also at UQ.

I take pride in ensuring that information is correct, complete and comprehensible, both as an inherent virtue and to empower everyone to make good decisions.

I'm also into music, public transport and psephology.
