I think of myself as a father, a hacker and as a person who loves solving problems. With Raygun I span development and operations daily, a challenge shared with many of our customers. I love coding on a great idea, building it out in a pragmatic fashion and then optimizing the heck out of it. But my key focus is in keeping the Raygun fully armed and operational so you can get the information you need as efficiently as possible. When all systems are nominal you will likely find me bouncing on a trampoline with my kids, drinking a nice aged rum or warping in to the back of a mineral line in StarCraft II.
I am passionate about technology and business. I've been involved in building several technology businesses and sold several of them, including Givealittle & Valuecruncher. I've invested in several New Zealand technology companies and enjoy acting as an advisor or board member to many technology companies. I'm fortunate to have been awarded as a Microsoft MVP for more than 5 years and in 2009 I won the New Zealand Hi-Tech Young Achiever award. I love building the New Zealand technology sector by building global technology businesses. I'm known to enjoy a well aged Whiskey.
