My passion is to be part of the digital future and use my creativity to build tools that make a difference. Making the career switch into digital 6 years back has been the best career decision I have made, enabling me to work in some great teams and delivering great outcomes. I have recently made the switch to management from an engineer and am really enjoying the role. My dream has been to work Atlassian and I feel I have the right skill set to bring to the table to be a successful engineering manager.

I also have an entrepreneurial background spanning over 6 years through which I posses a skill set in working with and mentoring teams and drive innovation in the hospitality industry.
