I have 15 years of experience working on technology initiatives with government agencies across Canberra, London, and New York City – from small projects through to very large complex multiyear implementations. My experience has been across engineering, consulting, program management and strategic account management, and at all stages of the project life cycle, from initial business case development, through to post implementation.
Technology is advancing and changing at a remarkably rapid pace. I am interested in how Governments can utilize new technology for more effective outcomes. I am particularly passionate about Open Data (I recently published a book on this – Open Data 101), and collaborations using crowd-sourcing.
My volunteering experience includes two years as a Board Member for the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, several months working with a leading indigenous school in Cape York Peninsula, and currently, as an advisor to the Wikimedia Foundation Audit Committee.
