My name is Stephen Hoad of Oz Modz and I'm 29 from Brisbane, Australia.
I'm still relatively new to the modding scene and I'm very lucky to have the opportunity to participate in a competition of this standard next to such big names.
My PC modding stemmed from my passion as a PC gamer and enthusiast. I really got started when I sought help for some of the more challenging components from a Brisbane local - Stuart Tonks. With his guidance and a little push I got stuck into my first mod and haven't looked back. I have always had a knack and passion for building and creating new things and modding is such a natural fit.
Since starting I have done a large variety of builds. The most notable being my Far Cry Primal build, which put the name Oz Modz out there on a global scale and helped me to achieve many great supportive sponsors.
I love showcasing my builds at events both in Australia and worldwide and being able to talk to other passionate modders and enthusiasts. Getting their feedback really drives me to try and push the bar higher each time and try new and creative modding methods.
