Christian Merina


Christian left Manila in 2013 in search of a better education and a career in IT.

After completing Cert II and III in Information, Digital Media and Technology at TAFE, Christian transferred to UTAS where he’s now in the final year of his Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology.

His passion for computers goes all the way back to age four when he started playing computer games. He studied basic HTML and CSS at high school and got hooked on web development.

Since moving to Tasmania, Christian has picked up a new love for photography. In his spare time he enjoys travelling around and photographing Tasmania’s breathtaking scenery.

He’s really organized when it comes to his work and is super eager to learn all he can in his first job.
