Over the past ~20 years I have had the opportunity to work with and lead geographically distributed teams, delivering complex systems in the cloud, on-premise.  Experience has taught me the importance of leading with humility including the importance of treating others as i would like to be treated myself. I derive great joy in leading teams, getting team mates to see the bigger picture, getting everyone to pull together in the same direction, delivering the expected outcomes.  I constantly strive to combine my passion for delivering outcomes with my ability to build long lasting professional relationships.

With the support from my team of volunteers I run the following volunteer organizations in my spare time -

  1. CoderDojo Altona North, a code club for kids with a focus on coding, robotics, electronics :
  2. Melbourne Raspberry Pi Makers Group, a makers group with interests in electronics, robotics, IoT, Home Automation, AI/ML, etc. :
  3. The High Altitude Balloon initiative at EMDRC Amateur Radio Club -

My personal hobbies include Electronics (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ESP, etc.), Robotics, 3D Printing, Home Automation, Amateur Radio, High Altitude Balloon tracking & launching.

  2. Hobby projects at

Over the years I've built (& currently maintain) STEM learning resources (coding, robotics, electronics, etc.) at and These STEM learning resources are used by the kids at CoderDojo Altona North in class every week.
Many moons ago, I had the privilege to lead the Performance Engineering capability at Accenture, TCS. Access the Body Of Knowledge I pulled together -
