Technologist – based in Melbourne, Australia

My passion is product development, I love working with teams, solving complex problems and ultimately helping build the right thing. I am a proud husband and a father of two beautiful girls. I was once an elite athlete who attempted to compete at the Bejiing Olympics in Rowing for Ireland, alas, I didn’t make the final cut, but had a lot of wonderful experiences competing on the international stage. I love sport and compete in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I love to read, my favourite book is Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
