Hi, I'm Will!

Engineer, Data enthusiast, Gym goer.


My name is William Velida (or Will). I’m about to start a new job in February next year as a graduate engineer at ASB Bank in New Zealand. I blog about technology, data, AI, Machine Learning and anything else that takes my fancy. This blog, its content and opinions are obviously my own.

I’d love it if you subscribe to this blog. I’m also on twitter and Instagram (if you’re into that).  If we meet in real life, please feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn.


I’ve lived in New Zealand since 2010. I spent two years in Christchurch and have lived in Auckland since 2012. I’ve got a BCom (Hons) majoring in Information Systems with First-class honours from the University of Auckland.

I’ve worn various hats during my time in New Zealand. I’ve been a rugby player, a politician, a digital marketing intern at Microsoft New Zealand, a software developer at a software health company called Orion Health and I’ve also been a tutor at the University of Auckland. I’ve also been a Microsoft Student Partner.

Outside of technology, I like to go to the gym and I overshare my life a bit on Instagram. I oversubscribe to too many online courses and I’m trying to improve my maths.
