Wilson's interests in computers began early. He built and sold his first computer when he was 11 and now shares his knowledge with both clients in his own small business, and with his school where the Computer Science Department uses a referencing guide and teaching materials he wrote.
His NCEA Level 1 results were outstanding and he was advanced to a Level 3 course. He won an award for top academic student in Year 11 and plans to study towards a Bachelor of Science majoring in Computer Science.
Wilson plays the violin and has played with a variety of orchestras including the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra. He enjoys composing his own music.
