About

Hi I’m Eric.

I recently finished my course in Bachelor of Information Technology at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia where I majored in Computer networks and security. You can read more about me and why I choose an IT degree at Monash here. Not only do I love writing awesome software and cybersecurity, I also love incorporating other sides of the tech field such as DevOps, Product Management, Software Engineering and Web/CloudTechnologies into my development practices.

Something that I’m currently proud of is winning the Rising Star Category of the 2019 itNews Benchmark Awards for founding and delivering MonPlan whilst I was still a student.

I also love impacting to everyone in the community, that is why I love mentoring other fellow developers, friends and family, and why I also love participating in many community events such as hackathons, conferences and meetups.
