Hi 👋.

I'm currently Technical Director at Aphelion Holdings.

I'm was formerly Technical Director at VMLY&R, a publicly traded, fortune 500 company.

Previously I was Technical Lead at Black Milk Clothing.

Prior to that I held technical lead / senior engineer positions in the advertising industry, working for companies such as Clemenger BBDO / GPY&R / Newlight Media.

I am currently available for consulting.


$300 AUD per hour. The rate is non-negotiable. All time needs to be booked in advance. I will require half down up front. Minimum of 5 hour ($1,500) commitment. Currently I am limited to 30 hours per week, however more hours may be possible upon request.



Before any work starts you will need to sign my consulting agreement. It has a confidentiality agreement included as I prefer not to sign NDA's. If this is a requirement for you, there is a $5,000 fee to sign your NDA.
