Why & About

I’ve created this page because we are entering an age of dataism and everything is about information. So what better opportunity to get your name URL and create your own online bio…

So here we go, here’s me, except online. Stuff about me that you can’t find easily on any social medias … Although my social medias are here

Background

13th of April 93, I entered this world!
Growing up on Central Coast (Australia), a very coastie town. Then moved to Newtown, Sydney to study Computer Science at Sydney University. After getting a degree I went in my industry of software development.
After a while, I said “stuff that”, not that I didn’t like the work. It was more the category I was falling into. So I told my parents I did things their way. Now it’s my turn. Not that I’ve accomplished much since then but I am having one hell of a time doing it!

Personal Projects

Here’s a few other projects I am working on…

Hammbag Logo

A hammock, bag & towel. We invented on a road trip. Since then been taking it to festivals, expo’s, shows & markets. Also appeared on Shark Tank AU

Boards on Tour Logo

An online blog of previous adventures and new upcomming ones! previously did a 1000km Skateboard trip I did for Camp Quality & Starlight

Amateur Pioneers Logic

Drinking Games Guide

An app in the making of all the games and party tips I’ve collected. And there’s a lot, so I thought might as well put it to good use

Skills

Let’s get … personal

Hobbies

Some hobbies I’ve been known to dabble in. Like a lot of people time seems to get away from them so I want to create a conscious effort to keep up the effort 

Art 

Coming from a very artsy family I have grown up drawing and painting. Then getting into computers I combined them doing a lot of concept art and graphic designs. I love even just helping friends with logo designs

Magic

I used to go to preform a lot of magic going through school,. I even was a sponsored magician at Sydney’s Easter Show. I used to do street magic and even preformed at parties

Video

I used to do a lot  of photography and videography. However what I took away from it was capturing the moments. So I love creating video collages of events & adventures I go on! You can check em out on our channel

My Book

Everywhere I go a take my VAPDA (Visual Arts Process Diary Advanced). Basically where I record all my thoughts, ideas, plans or anything! … Some times I even draw. At very least I have my little notebook on me where I can quickly scribble in it and transfer it to my VAPDA.

So here’s inside the mind of Dylan.
(This is more for me. As my VAPDA is getting full and I need to make a new one although I still need some of these ideas)

Academic

Certificates

Silver Medallion

Library

Here are some books I’ve read. After you finish your academic years a lot of people make the mistake of stop learning. However I believe that those years just taught you how to learn. The real learning comes after. So here are some books I’ve read (or listened to) and who I’d recommend them for.
