Energy transition geek, digital technology professional, fantasy reader
I believe technology can be a force for the good, and I apply that belief to solve complex problems facing humanity. At the moment, I am thinking deeply about enabling the green transition of energy.
I build product engineering teams, and we explore possibilities of digitally enabling this energy transition together. We research customer needs, build our hypothesis, prototype and test in market at a fast pace. Then we do it again! We learn and we scale.
Change programs I lead deliver small increments of value, and we celebrate small successes. We fail fast. But when I look back with my teams at our track record of transformation, we look back with pride.
I get geeky on lean thinking, devops, service design, performance engineering and programming languages at work, and on history, philosophy and fantasy outside!
My pronouns are
I work on consumer technology for retail and convenience at the moment. In the past, I have worked across the energy value chain from energy production to trading to corporate strategy.
My Typical Day: I wake up and workout for a bit. Some days I prepare the kids for school, and do the school run. Most days I am out of the house by 6:30 and at work around 8:00. My work needs me to collaborate across Australia, India, UK, US and sometimes Germany! So generally long days and back at home around 8:00 to just see the kids off to bed before dinner and retiring for the day.
