Biography
Over 16 years in IT I have had the opportunity to work with many leading edge technologies - allowing me to be a part of major transformations in the industry.

 Starting out in web design prior to the dot com era, I then took on more technical roles and have been involved in some of the first Australian deployments of metropolitan networks, voice over IP and video streaming over the Internet.
 My technical experiences were followed by 10 solid years in various senior consulting positions advising both internal and external senior management / stakeholders on strategic technology adoption and selection along with delivery of solutions across a range of business sectors, and managing technical resources for delivery.
 Many of my roles have involved coaching and mentoring team members along with establishing incentive schemes to drive results and growth.
 One of my strengths is the ability to thoroughly understand each client’s challenges and deliver solution in line with their unique business requirements.

I am passionate about the cloud and the opportunities it brings. Having spent most of my career delivering on-premise business productivity technology, I co-founded Paradyne to deliver cost-effective solutions by means of the cloud. My deep technical expertise is backed by practical business experience, ensuring that customers get the best of both worlds – world-class technology that delivers real business benefits.
