Me and the family.


I'm an engineering manager and cancer survivor, diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2004, beating it in 2005. I live and work in the Blue Mountains, with my wife Julia, and our three girls Penny, Leese, and Evie.

Convening the second ever DevOps conference in the world in Sydney in 2010, I'm currently the Secretary of DevOps Australia, and co-organise the monthly Sydney DevOps meetups, the longest running DevOps meetup in the world.

I speak internationally about both the cultural and technical side of DevOps, covering Just Culture, complexity, cognitive biases, and monitoring tools.

I run, read, and music in my spare time.
