Digital Content Creator • Tech-savvy guy
Hoa loves his tech, along with a bit of media on the side too.
Hoa Diep (pronounced ho-are dee-yep) studied for his BA (Hons) Television and Radio degree at the University of Salford in Manchester, based at MediaCityUK.

His interest in media didn't come about straightforward in his life. There were tiny little hints of love for TV and radio early on in his teenage life, but that alone wasn't enough for him to make it as something of a potential career. It wasn't until he looked at his A-level Media Studies grades that it was actually the way to go, having had the tough decision on what to choose to study at university - just like many other young people at that stage.

Nowadays, he enjoys exploring and experimenting with the array of different emerging media platforms and technologies. Not being afraid to admit it, he is an avid Apple fanboy, something that is certainly well-known amongst his peers. (He does still like other tech stuff too, you know!)

Hoa's skills include making short TV and radio items, other digital content, and has excellent technical abilities with virtually any piece of kit (or anything that basically runs on electricity). He is proud of his ability to self-educate with gadgets, simply by just playing about and experimenting, being able to grasp things quite quickly. Crucially, he really enjoys helping people (something embedded deeply in his DNA). Whatever the problem is - in any shape or form - he will not give up until there's a smile on that person's face, and with that, is his form of adrenaline to keep on going and help out even more.

Looking to the future, Hoa hopefully aims to have his own business (whatever this will be) and generally wants to make the world a better place by helping out whenever and wherever possible.
