My bio used to simply say, "I do things". This is probably inadequate, so I'll add this…

I organise a series of events that have been held in Australia since 2012, called LAST Conference. The first was held in Melbourne, and it's since grown to have editions in Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra. Adelaide will be coming online in 2019. I also organise the first event in the Southern Hemisphere to be structured around Alistair Cockburn's, Heart of Agile. It's called 1st Conference. I have been involved organising Melbourne's longest running and largest agile meetup group, Melbourne Agile and Scrum User Group, since 2011. I also organise a conference called Spark the Change Melbourne. It's about meaning and purpose in work.

I have helped to bring people such as Jurgen Appelo, Alistair Cockburn and Bas Vodde to Australia to speak and/or teach. I have also spoken at meetups and conferences such as Scrum Australia, Agile Singapore and LAST Conference.

I've worked as a Solution Architect, Project Manager, Product Manager, Scrum Master, Coach etc., as well as being an organiser. The companies I have been involved with include businesses in Australia and the UK, that include Telstra, SecurePay, Pearson, and RMIT University.
