Olivia is a Software Developer and one of our Minister of Fun Champions at Sentient Computing, creating training and learning simulations in Virtual Reality (VR) for the mining, education, health and resources sectors.
She is particularly passionate about showing youth and women of our coming generation that they too can pursue a games development background and apply that knowledge into a myriad of industries, both locally and abroad. In doing so, she hopes to broaden the eyes of young developers to opportunities and possibilities not yet considered outside of the games industry.
After a video game filled childhood, a passion for problem solving and a yearning to build complex functions, her love for games, technology and programming was born. Olivia has worked in a Gaming Lounge, graduated with a degree in Games Development, became a Twitch Affiliate live streaming herself playing video games, and now has a career in Software Development using serious games to create solutions in the digital space.
Olivia is also a volunteer events sub-committee member of Immerse Australia, a member-driven association representing the interests of the immersive technology industry in Australia.
