Since graduating from Swinburne in 2004, I have worked in various networking-related roles for a range of organisations, including six years as a consultant for large Independent and Catholic secondary colleges. This work gave me a sound understanding of the sector and provided me with an opportunity to design and implement several large campus networks and develop my consulting skills more generally. Several years ago, I also spent some time focusing on music and running a recording label with a friend.
I’m based in Melbourne and work in the Enterprise Services team. My role at AARNet is to provide technical consulting and implementation services to customers across a range of technology areas. For example, my current work consists of a campus wireless LAN (Local Area Network) and NAC (Network Access Control) implementation project, a border network design project, and a technical project management/design review role for a university-wide network refresh.
I enjoy learning and problem solving, and my main aim in the coming years is to broaden my exposure to various network technologies and designs, with a view to becoming a network architect further down the track. My work with AARNet is already helping me to achieve this aim by providing project opportunities that cover a wide range of complex networks, large and small!
When I’m not at work, I’m typically chipping away at one of my (too) many hobbies. I’m a singer and have played guitar since I was seven years old, so music is a major part of my life with ~2.5 bands happening at any one time. I also design, build and sell audio effects electronics, read and write various things, play squash, learn German, make various fermented foods, and am a keen cyclist.
