This is My Story

As a T-Shaped professional with international cross-industry development and project management experience I’ve worked on a variety of projects from Enterprise IT to eLearning simulations to educational apps and games in teams of all sizes.

At heart I’m a creative technologist who understands the business, product, project, design, and development aspects involved in taking something from concept to realization.

I do strategy development, business planning, market research, product management, project management, development, and teaching. While I have deep expertise in a number of areas I would never claim to be an expert. You always have to learn new things, integrate them into the old, and apply them to new contexts.

As the bluesy world music infused slide guitar/harmonica/electronica cyborg “Komuso Tokugawa” I perform music in online virtual worlds using a dynamically controlled AI (Artificial Intelligence) Rhythm Section. Read more at Komuso.info

I’m a former world champion in 8-way team sport parachuting who competed in 3 world championships for Australia.
