This is My Story

As a T-Shaped professional with international cross-industry development and project management experience I’ve worked on a variety of projects from Enterprise IT to eLearning simulations to educational apps and games in teams of all sizes.

At heart I’m a creative technologist who understands the business, product, project, design, and development aspects involved in taking something from concept to realization.

I do strategy development, business planning, market research, product management, project management, development, and teaching. While I have deep expertise in a number of areas I would never claim to be an expert. You always have to learn new things, integrate them into the old, and apply them to new contexts.

I perform music in online virtual worlds using a dynamically controlled AI (Artificial Intelligence) Rhythm Section. Read more at music.sonicviz.com

I’m a former world champion in 8-way team sport parachuting who competed in 3 world championships for Australia.
