I Know Mobile + Wireless.
I completed a 4 years Software Engineering degree at Curtin University. I've since spent the last 15 years working with mobile. I was responsible for the creation of the ANT in Android stack. I've built phone OS software and apps. I've built bike headunit software.
I Know People + Different Cultures.
I'm a traveller. A Couchsurfer. A host. A digital nomad that isn't very nomadic. My career has seen me based 6 years in Australia, 5 in North America and 4 in Europe (with some long stops in Japan and Indonesia).
Currently: Perth, Australia
I Know Sports + Structured Training.
I'm a runner, snowboarder/skier, paddle boarder, hiker, and primarily a mountain biker (I run Black Ram MTB Skills & Coaching). I take this seriously enough that it has taken me to the US and Canadian Rockies, and the French Alps. Strava will kill me.
I Know Getting Things Done.
I'm a natural leader. I've studied agile techniques (after a very non-agile start) and performance management. I've lead teams comprised entirely of interns and new graduates, or with every team member working in different locations.
