As General Manager I am responsible for managing the business side of Austhink Software including marketing & sales, finance & accounts, IT and general administration - all that boring stuff that no one else wants to do but that, for some odd reason, I seem to quite enjoy. As you can see I don't wear a brown suit and I do have a modicum of personality despite being an engineer who does accounting....

I spent 10 years at the University of Melbourne to earn a Bachelor of Engineering and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering which furnished me with a set of formal qualifications that have become almost completely irrelevant to the direction my career has taken. Recognising this gap in my training I returned to do more education, this time an Executive MBA at the Mt Eliza Business School, which I hope to complete some time this year if I can shoe-horn it between my busy job here, my wife and, now, 3 children and my sporting pursuits of cycling and rowing.

In between developing my large and liberal education at our best tertiary institutions I have actually managed to gain some useful real-world experience encompassing strategy development, innovation, project management, team building and information technology and telecommunications management.
