Work History


  • I’m about to start something new with a company you may know - I can’t wait until I can disclose this one.
  • Between December 2015 and November 2017 I worked with A Cloud Guru designing and producing four of their most well regarded courses. AWS Certified DevOps Engineer - Professional, Amazon DynamoDB - From Beginner to Pro, Advanced CloudFormation and AWS Advanced Networking - Specialty. I still to this day get good feedback on these, I’m super proud and a few were used within AWS.
  • Between March 2016 and September 2016 I did a short stint at Bulletproof, a major Australian Cloud Consultancy business. I worked on a larger cloud migration & implementation for Woolworths, a major Australian food retailer.
  • From August 2015 to March 2016 I helped create an AWS consultancy at Idea 11, a Brisbane based managed & project services business. During my time as a Solutions Architect I won a number of major client deals including Watpac, BHP Billiton, QBCC and Aurion HR.
  • I held various roles at Ordyss, a Brisbane based managed and project services business from October 2011 until July 2015. I guided the businesses technical roadmap, helped mentor and manage technical staff and acted as solutions architect and project manager on all of the high risk or high project implementations within the business.
