I am a design-driven Product and Project Manager with a Software Engineer heart and years of proven experience in Client facing roles. Innovation is about change and enjoying that change.
I lead a team of developers and researchers at Deakin University
With almost 10 years of experience in delivering IT projects for the largest firms and an active industry research background, I balance myself between cutting edge innovation and well-designed products to provide outstanding client experiences. I try to stay on top of trends and buzz words, keeping an eye on the next big things, this allowed me to be part of some of IBM’s largest ventures, including the opportunity to fight skin Cancer with AI, and develop one of the largest blockchain-based supply chain solutions in the world. When I am not too busy, I work on my private startup projects, writing actual lines of code. Launchpad is my latest baby, I left IBM Research Australia to create my own lab inside Deakin University and create tomorrows greatest Software Engineers, we find raw talents, we mix them with professionals, and we deliver products to clients at a fraction of the cost.
