I have an insatiable appetite for new ideas, best practices, and ways to be more productive and happy. I’m curious about the world, what makes it tick, and how I want to make my mark on it. I’m committed to life long continuous learning and enjoy staying up to date in developments within the IT industry and others, because I’ve realised that innovation is found at the boundaries between disciplines, not by narrowly focusing in one area. I’m fascinated by puzzles and problem solving and have the need to understand at a deeper level not only to see how things work but for the challenge and pure fun of discovery. I enjoy working with people who have a ”work hard play hard” attitude, a real passion about their interests and get through the tougher times with a great sense of humour.
