The first week of 2015, I’m moving to New York City. I'm pretty excited about it, but I’ll need work. Currently, I work for Microsoft. They’re working with me to see if there are any internal opportunities that will suit, but that may not be possible. I’m very interested in work leading the design and development of products that create real benefits for their intended community and/or customers.
Here’s a copy of my resume (PDF), and below there is a summary of how I’ve kept busy the last few years. If you can think of an opportunity or an introduction that might suit, please email me at email@example.com.
I’m the Startup Lead for Microsoft Australia. I'm responsible for the strategic impact of Microsoft within the Australian startup ecosystem. Basically that means my job is helping startups. With anything. I debug apps, web services, and business models. I partner with VCs, accelerators, incubators, universities and others to amplify benefits they offer for startups. I help startups find customers, employees or funding. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me about your business!
I’m a web standardista from way back (I ran the Web Standards Group meetings in Melbourne from 2004-2006) and gave presentations at Web Directions South, Edge of the Web, Microsoft’s REMIX10 and New Zealand’s Webstock conference on the topic of The Open Web.
With support from some amazing people, I used to run an industry event called Webjam to provide a platform for people to show off their innovations built on the web and web technologies.
I’m a passionate advocate of open web technologies but I try to temper that by actually knowing about those technologies — preferably from having used them.
I’m available for coffee, drinks, lunch, and hearing about you.
