Profile Summary

I am a technologist with more than 20 years of experience deep in and around the worlds of ICT, mobile and telecommunications, and the many exciting interfaces where they meet, and overlap.

Technically knowledgeable, analytical and pragmatic, I am also a humanist with a strong interest in the environments technology creates – the audiovisual, the social and business texture, and the emotion created by our interactions with technology and how that influences our behaviours, our perceptions and the places where we feel invited to engage in an increasingly digital world.

I get excited of ideas that have a net positive impact on the world;
that are simple in the face of often unnecessary complexity;
that anticipate and prepare for plausible futures;
and fuel a mindset of necessary change for a world to become sustainable, resilient and liveable.

I employ both the depth and breadth of my experience, from mission-critical financial services to emerging technology foresight, to drive such ideas into innovations and resilient strategies.
