Alex (or better known as Hippo) is currently a 3rd year undergraduate, studying the Bachelor of Information Technology Co-Op Scholarship Course at the University of Technology, Sydney.

She is also an active member of the Sydney Women in Engineering & IT Speakers' Program and also the Lead Ambassador for the Sydney Chapter of the Google-sponsored initiative, Girl Geek Coffees.

Her interests in IT include web development, UX design and emerging technologies and one day she would like to use her skills and experiences in IT to assist charities and non-profit organisations.

When Hippo's not studying or working she enjoys cafe hopping, blogging, completing quests on Fitocracy or playing the occasional game of TF2 (sandvich and I are coming for you!).
