The challenge to solve complex operational challenges, ones that can have a big impact if they can be fixed right, drives me. I have tertiary qualifications in business and law but more importantly I can find the best espresso coffee within a 2 mile radius inside of 90 seconds! I align myself with organizations tackling the big challenges - ones that ask ‘why not’. I’m an engaged contributor and a happy, hardworking optimist on the never ending journey of learning.
