I’m a consulting systems engineer living and working in Sydney specializing in application and telecommunications technologies with a strong background in open source platforms such as Linux.
In my regular work I consult with customers to determine requirements and build solution designs, before working with them (or their vendors) at a technical hands-on level to implement and document robust enterprise-grade solutions.
My commercial experience includes running Amberdms, a New Zealand software startup for around 2 years, as well as 4 years experience working at Prophecy Networks, a medium sized IT consultancy company specializing in telecommunications and software engineering experts.
In my free time, I tend to hack on fun software projects (see my own projects here), write about geeky topics, sometimes I write about traveling and sometimes I even write about going outside, a clearly shocking act for someone who spends 12+ hours a day infront of a computer screen. O_o
I originate from Wellington (the capital city of New Zealand), and spent a year living in Auckland (the largest city in New Zealand) before moving to Sydney (the largest city in Australia) in late 2012 for a period of “OE” (Kiwism for Overseas Education – the act of spending time living internationally to gain a better world perspective).
I’m particularly passionate about Open Source software (especially the Linux world), I often discuss vegetarianism (having been vegetarian since 2007) and like many geeks, have opinions in many other areas as well.
