Practice Manager - Technology, Sydney 

Describe  your career history

With a degree in Spanish and Management, I was a bit stumped about what to do and then secured an Internship at Bloomberg London so I could speak Spanish for 10 weeks. Five years later after being involved in Technical Projects and managing a team I decided a change of scenery was needed and I was lured to the outdoor lifestyle of Sydney. After 2 years in Recruitment, it (and Sydney) is definitely home , how could I leave the sunshine and the beaches!

What do you see as the next big game changer in the Digital Media and Technology industry?

Everything is moving towards the Cloud and with IPTV taking off there will be a higher demand for specialist Broadcasting Engineers.

You call yourself a specialist. How so?

I've taken time to get to know the Sydney market - inside out, within my space, meet with Candidates and attend events and conferences. Being a little bit of a geek at heart has helped as it’s been a  lot of fun!

What is your greatest achievement? Career or Personal. 

Completing two marathons in London and Paris. I am now under the impression I can do a half marathon, and signed up for it... pretty sure I will live to regret that decision!

What is the best thing about your role?

The diversity and the autonomy.

When you were a child, what did you want to be?

An Astronaut.

What is your favourite quote?

"The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter".

If you could invite 5 people to dinner who would they be…

David Attenborough, Gary Barlow, Michelle Obama, Samuel L Jackson and Heston Blumenthal
