Shiraz Shrestha

I’m Shiraz Shrestha, your fellow enthusiast on all things technology and creativity, currently immersing into the complexities of Cybersecurity through my Master’s journey at Charles Darwin University, Australia. Navigating through multiple continents, from the rich cultural tapestry of Nepal to the innovative landscapes of the United States, and now the dynamic arenas of Australia, my journey has been a fascinating exploration of not just technology, but also of cultures, methodologies, and collaborative spirits. I’ve always believed in a symbiotic relationship between technology and creativity. Whether it’s crafting lines of code or capturing a photograph, the principle of creating something impactful and expressive remains the same. From software frameworks to lenses, my varied interests have always oscillated between the technical and the creative, embodying a spirit of continuous learning and expression through multiple mediums such as photography, videography, arts, and music. Join me as we traverse through IT Code Fair, exploring, learning, and perhaps, finding that sweet spot where technology meets art. Excited to embark on this journey of exploration and innovation with all of you!
