What do you love about your work?
I love the education side to my job. Technology can be a very confusing space and often is for businesses so I spend a lot of my time meeting people and educating them on how they can improve their business from a technical perspective.
This education component also requires face to face meetings which is the other aspect of the role which makes it perfect for both myself and my clients.
What were your biggest achievements for 2014?
Two major points stood out in 2014, the first was the acquisition of my previous company, Friday Media. This was an achievement as transition can often be difficult, especially moving into a bigger company however it has all run well and helped increase our capacity to service clients.
The second major achievement was our step into the Building Information Modelling (BIM) market through our recently appointed role with the Dulux Group.
What are your goals leading into 2015?
One of the big goals of 2015 is to expand the Software arm of the business through new projects. 2104 marked the start of this journey with the acquisition of Friday Media alongside our push into the BIM space. 2015 will see an active drive towards continuing this success and expanding further.
What is your favourite food and restaurant?
I am a big eater so this is a hard question however my favourite food would have to be Thai Green Curry with Thai Angels in Footscray being my favourite restaurant.
What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
Number one at the moment is “Fancy” by ‘Iggy Azalea’ however the most played song of all time is “Mr. Jones” by ‘Counting Crows’.
What is one of your favourite quotes?
“A good sales person has 2 ears and one mouth and uses them proportionally”
What would you name the autobiography of your life?
My life is about reaching goals in half the time of the average person so I would likely name it something like “Getting there in half the time”.
If I won a 5 million dollars I would…….
My goals have always been around starting young to ensure that I finish young and can enjoy my time with my family. If I won a sizable amount of money it would go straight into investment properties to ensure my family and children have a stable future guaranteed.
