I grew up in a small village called Stockinbingal. "Stock" as locals call it is 4 hours west of Sydney in the state of NSWAustralia. I went to primary school in Stock and high school in Cootamundra. I then went to uni at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst and studied Industrial Mathematics and Computing with a double major in computing. I also did my honors year at CSU.

After graduation I worked for a small software development company in Bathurst called Belvoir. I worked there for 6 years before moving to Orange (40 minutes west of Bathurst) and began working for Fujitsu Australia. In March 2008 Fujitsu sold the business unit I was working for to a company called Civica. I left Civica on the 9th of April 2010 to concentrate in building a business I started.  This will also give me (I hope!) some time to try new business ideas.
