I like buying coffees, leading passionate people and building great products - FAST.
I've been awarded prestigious awards and lost my hair in doing so
I started Five2One in May 2017 with $500 and grew it to 7 figures and 10 team members in 11 months & 28 days (the day I closed the deal that got us the mark)
In this time we've been recognised as one of the best in Australia and have built 21 production grade applications for start ups and corporates.
I've worked with PwC, NewsCorp, Carsguide, IAG, WilliamHill, Maoneng, SocietyOne, UNSW and many other multi-(b)million dollar companies.
I have taught at 2 software bootcamps on how to build quality software products in various technologies and authored 3 courses on Udemy that gained nearly ~35,000 students online.
I've spoken internationally and nationally at over 46 events from meetups to paid conferences.
We've helped raise Millions in blockchain and worked with companies that are changing the world as we know it.
During this time I learnt how important having a strong team (that aligns with you) is, how important it is to believe in yourself and to enjoy what you're doing.
I still forget to put semi-colons and eat dessert before the main course.
I'm now building what i've wanted to from the beginning - Laddr - a smart, AI platform that matches using the most appropriate data points to result in the perfect job and perfect hire. It was built by engineers - for engineers AND SHABANG also by founders - for founders => Join the future: www.laddr.ai
You'll often find me on stage sharing advice and tips on bootstrapping a B2B business to 10 people within a few months, to talks on blockchains position in the future, the best software development practices and product growth tactics.
I've been called a tech lead, CEO, CTO, coder, engineer, founder, leader, coffee buyer, non-sleeper and many other things -no one seems to realise i'm an excellent singer (😂)
