Who do you work for and what do you do in that role?
ELMO Software - Risk & Compliance Manager

How did you get involved with DSPANZ?
I was introduced to ABSIA in 2016 when I was Subject Matter Expert at The Association for Payroll Specialists (TAPS). When joining ELMO in 2020, knowing the benefits of being part of this community, I encouraged ELMO to join DSPANZ.

What keeps you busy outside of your work life and DSPANZ?
I love nature and try to get out and enjoy some of our amazing planet as often as possible. Obviously I do a lot of research as well to keep up to date with any changes, so its quite a bit of reading legislation. When time allows, I like to try out new recipes to broaden my culinary skills.

What would you love to see happen with technology in the next 50 years?
Learn new ways to recycle, reuse and re-engineer old technology to minimise waste.

Which is best - the book or the movie?
I like to read the book first then watch the movie. It allows your imagination to create your own version of the authors vision then see what they were actually projecting.

What has been the most rewarding part of your career so far?
Being able to share my knowledge with various Government working groups to assist with the development of projects such as Single Touch Payroll.

If you had your own talk show, who would you invite as your first guest?
Matthew McConaughey 

And finally, what’s the weirdest food you’ve ever eaten?
Sea Urchin
