Please provide a brief description of your career history?

In my younger years I had a number of roles within Customer Service and Administration.  I fell into recruitment whilst living the Australian dream.  I had worked at CSG Talent for 4.5 years focusing on FMCG marketing recruitment and Strategic Accounts more recently  

What makes you ‘now’ in technology?

I love what Google are doing.  Google assist, AI etc.  I’m excited, confused and worried.  How can they do the things they say they are/will be able to do??? Must be black magic…...

What gets you out of bed on a Monday morning?

I live on a beautiful tree-lined street so the really annoying birds get me up EVERY morning

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

Amazon mid-term – the way we shop and online and in store will change dramatically but long-term, who knows.  Look at how far we have come in the last 10years…..

What is your greatest achievement? (This could be either work or personal)

Moving to the other side of the world.  Completing my regional work which I can only compare to becoming a Marine: Being broken and then being rebuilt.  Obtaining sponsorship without a degree or having worked for the business with only having 1 week left on my WHV.  Fast tracking a few years, I now have PR and I have just applied for my Citizenship. 

What is the best thing about your role?

The people and their goals to be better.

Who sits next to you in the office?

Louise Kenny 

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

A police officer

What is your favourite quote?

About 1000 mems and this week it is: In a world where you can be anything, be kind.  Last week: You’re only one decision away from choosing a totally different life. 

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

The people I miss the most living in Australia. My Mum, Dad and best friends
