Greetings, one and all, and welcome to my online portfolio. This WordPress site aims to host links to and descriptions of all my most influential projects. But enough about the site, you want to know about me personally.
My name is Jack Stringer and I am male, born on February the 28th, 1998. I was medically diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at age 3. My passion has always been in computer software consumption, design and development, and I have been exercising this from as young as 5 years old. My sense of creativity first emerged in Thomas Acres Public School, where I created two separate comic strip series, collaboratively drawn with my closest friends at the time. These friends also briefly entered my video-making career within High Score Productions.
After leaving primary school and heading to Broughton Anglican College, I continued to develop my practice in drawing under the alias jack5, without the capital letter, though at the same time learned of new ways to express myself using other, more impressive technologies such as the internet, videography, graphic design and music production. By about Year 10 I had decided to mostly abandon my drawing pastimes and focus on the future, capitalising the J in my alias.
I am now a part-time student at Western Sydney University studying for a Bachelor of Information and Communications Technology, hoping to graduate in 2022. I continue to play video games and be a videographer during this time, though my other skills have mostly been discarded in favour of the former two.
