MY RESUME

SALES MANAGER

MacServery 2014 - Current

Head of Hosted Web Technologies sales. Concentrating on the small business market, I provide online professional solutions for small business owners to enhance both their income and their time with their families. Creating a new website for a client is just the first step.

SALES AND MARKETING MANAGER

Footprints Nursery Photography 2013 - Current

In the highly competitive newborn photography market, I carved my own niche in the Western Sydney area. Still growing, Footprints Nursery has now taken precious images of 10,000+ newborn babies in Sydney over the past 7 years.

OWNER/MANAGER

Snap Printing Liverpool 2010 - 2013

Unfortunately this business did not survive the GFC in the extremely competitive printing industry, but it did give me a wealth of experience in what NOT to do in small business!

IT/WEB MANAGER

Eurolight Holdings 2009 - 2011

Covering every aspect of IT in the one position, while in this role I learnt more than in any other just how important an effective, optimised, and integrated solution can be to a business. Over 18 months, I sucessfully redesigned and rebuilt a fully automated Web and POS IT system for a retail chain in Sydney.

CLINICAL SYSTEMS SOFTWARE TRAINER

Western Area Health Service 2009

Returning to my roots in the Medical Industry, in this role I was part of a team that trained and launched a new Emergency Department patient management solution. Once of the greatest lessons I have learnt in IT came from this role - stakeholder "by-in" is the single most important aspect of any IT project.

SENIOR LOTUS NOTES DEVELOPER

Coca-Cola Amatil 2007 - 2008

It was only a 1-year contract, but it was a great year! After studying for my IBM CLP qualifications for so long - this was the job that I was in the IT industry for! Project managment, design, development and launch across many divisions and stake-holders - I loved it!

LEAD LOTUS DEVELOPER/ADMINISTRATOR

Grace Removals Group 2001 - 2007

My first "big" job in the IT industry! Between 4 members of the IT team, we supported 350+ users in 17 locations around Australia and New Zealand. It was fun - lots of travel, lots of responsibility and lots of challenges!

CONTRACT HELPDESK CONSULTANT

NSW Police Force 1991 - 2001

The pinnacle of my help desk career, I was employed specifically to clean-up the internal processes of the Help Desk. And I did!

CALL CENTRE ANALYST

Alcatel Australia 1999

It was a short 6-month contract, but it was intense! Rotating shifts with 24hrs a day guaranteed availability to internal telecommunications engineers. This role taught me a lot about the core of any IT support team - aproachability!

HELPDESK OPERATOR

IMS Health Strategic Technologies 1998 - 2009

My first IT career position! I cut my helpdesk teeth on Lotus Notes replication over dial-up modem supporting 50+ pharmacuetical company reps.
