I can’t start my morning without…
Giving one of my cats a cuddle, Zack. He won’t let me start the day without a cuddle.
Outside of work I like to…
Explore the coastline with my camera, and the occasional PlayStation game here and there too.
My hidden talent is…
I used to be a 35mm film projectionist with the best job through my uni days at an art deco cinema in Adelaide
The thing on my desk I love the most is…
At the moment a Lego Goofy and Pluto. Because Disney and Lego combined!
At work, I’m happiest when…
Coding: working with Laravel and Vue takes me to my (incredibly euphoric) happy place.
