I’m a New Zealander at heart who made Brisbane, Australia my home.
My I.T. career of over 20 years started in Enterprise Systems Administration and Architecture for Banking, Government and Defence, focussed on Microsoft and IBM software platforms. My last Enterprise role was as a Service Delivery Manager, responsible for IBM developers & system administrators in multiple locations.
Now I’m dedicated to the Small and Medium Business space, helping other I.T. partners and customers keep up with the rapid pace of change in technology.
I’m a ‘Cloud realist’, believing that a ton of factors influence if and how you should move to the Cloud. I’m a big fan of Office 365 and Xero.
It’s not the technology that counts, it’s what you do with it. I’m pretty passionate about the I.T. industry and what it can help people achieve.
I love to write and speak, being approached for expert comment, appearing in guest blogs & podcasts and running presentations & training (both in person & online).
And when I’m not at my desk, I’m at my espresso machine or volunteering in my community with the State Emergency Services.
