AI / Cloud



I'm the CTO at Zarmada, a technology consulting group based in Seattle. We help our customers realize the potential of emerging technology trends from the earliest planning stages with market analysis & architectural guidance, through to execution with proofs of concept, hands-on training, & system implementation. Our clients include some of the world's largest public cloud providers and we've been privileged to have a front row seat for some of the biggest industry shifts in recent times including IoT, big data, and AI.

With over a decade at the bleeding edge, I've accumulated a broad set of experiences solving diverse problems for our customers with solutions for devices, mobile, web, & cloud using the best offerings from a range of vendors. I'm a regular speaker at community events like Ignite and you can also find me on online platforms like Channel 9.

Prior to Zarmada, I was a practice lead at Empired, one of the largest Microsoft partners in Australasia, and helped create their US-based innovation hub. I've also worked for Microsoft as a software engineer, building products including BizTalk, AppFabric, and Azure.
