Hi there I’m Dan. This is a little blog where I like to write about things from my work, life and a hobby or two. I’ve been working with technology every since I discovered I had opposable thumbs and while attracted to complexity , its the simplicity of things that really appeals.
“I would not give a fig for the simplicity this side of complexity, but I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity.” Oliver Wendell Holmes
My professional background
I’m a reformed scientist who has used technology and business acumen for over two decades working with startups through to big business. I’ve worked in almost every sector imaginable, with formal technical training and business skills gained at university too. In addition to some fancy letters behind my name I’ve had a media fellowship at the ABC HQ in Sydney a few years back as well as being recognised as an Advance Queensland, Queensland Community Digital Champion by the Queensland Government in 2016. I’m committed to Brisbane and have lived off and on on the Southside for most off my adult life (Ok there was that sojourn to the Antarctic and a stint in London finance sector).
