Who do you work for and what do you do in that role?
I am the Head of Government & Industry Engagement at SuperChoice Services.
How did you get involved with ABSIA?
I have been involved with ABSIA on-and-off from its inception - originally when still working within Government but then have been a member since joining SuperChoice nearly 5 years ago.
What keeps you busy outside of your day job and ABSIA?
Family & friends, pets, exercise & sports ... sometimes in that order.
What is the best career advice that you wish to share with others?
To really make a difference you need to be committed - when you get involved and apply some effort the rewards follow.
What excites you about working in the software industry?
My background is in implementing policy measures that require technology to deliver the desired business outcomes. We are at a tipping where there is a significant amount of change occurring for businesses that will drive through new policy initiatives and hence technology requirements. And DSPs will be crucial to providing the software that enable businesses to access new services.
The pace and scale of changes on the horizon are daunting but what an opportunity for all of us to prosper.
What is the one piece of technology that you wish existed?
Flux capacitor - what could go wrong?
What is a book, movie, TV show or podcast that you would recommend?
Joe Rogan - not to be taken too seriously but covers some interesting topics - makes the drive between Canberra and Sydney go a bit more quickly.
And I'm still loving Kayo - why did it take so long??
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Isn't Canberra the world's most liveable city ... LOL.
Anywhere in the world becomes acreage around Bodalla on the NSW South Coast - rolling green hills and views to the ocean. That'll do.
And finally, if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
