Managing Director BSc. Engineering
After 23 years at Seimens in the telecommunications/mobile GSM networks I decided to reinvent myself. I migrated to Australia in 2002 from Tanzania and 6 years later I met Trevor and together we established NetWireless. I wanted to have the opportunity to be visionary and make decisions about working with the latest technology. NetWireless certainly enabled us to create innovative solutions for our clients, and having been operational for several years now, I am keen to see our professional and managed services portfolios grow.
Outside of work I have a love of beer, not purely drinking it but brewing it! I made my first brew at age sixteen and have continued to reproduce my tried and tested homemade recipe ever since.
Technical Director / Consultant
I began my career as a radio technician at Victoria Communications. With a passion for all things technical, it wasn’t long before I moved into the role of Service Manager. The real step change came after 9 years at Dematic and meeting Mark. We spoke extensively about starting our own IT Consultancy and today we are fortunate to have the freedom to explore and create better solutions for our customers. I am proud of our team of engineers and our achievements, a highlight has to be being awarded the acclaimed ‘Aruba Retail Partner of the year 2016’.
On a personal note, I’m a true blue member of the Carlton Football Club featuring in their long term member profiles and I am also a long-term member of ‘Step into Life’. In fact they have even named an award after me for their outstanding members!
General Manager – Sales
Following six years in fundraising for non-for-profits, I joined NetWireless. Driven by my passion for ensuring our planet can be a better place to live if we do the right thing, I pride myself on supplying the best technological solutions that align with our client’s strategic direction. I ensure the technologies being deployed are innovative, increase workplace productivity and efficiency, and are a cost-effective solution.
I’m a family man who loves nature and bike riding, so much so that I moved to the idyllic location of Jervis Bay in New South Wales. One of the fantastic benefits of working for a tech company is the freedom that the digital space provides.
I officially joined NetWireless not long after my year 10 work experience. I’ve always had a passion for IT and the advancement in technology. I was thrilled when Mark and Trevor offered me a full time opportunity and since then my career has gone from strength to strength. I thoroughly enjoy travelling around Australia, visiting clients and completing Wi-Fi site surveys to build the best design for our customers. My home life is important to me, I love spending time with my two younger brothers and my dog, Curry. Recently, one of my brothers completed their year 10 work experience at NetWireless, it felt great to share my workplace and show him the great advantages of Wi-Fi technology.
Other than technology, I have a love for bright colours, so much so I recently painted my house bright blue and purchased a bright yellow car.
I have a strong background in technology having studied a degree in Computer Science and acquired industry certifications accredited by Aruba Networks and Cisco. My 10-year experience in networking is proving to be invaluable particularly with troubleshooting and implementing solutions that meet the needs of our customers. As mobile becomes more prominent within industry verticals people are choosing wireless as their first preference and I am pleased to be a part of NetWireless’ forward thinking team of IT professionals.
Outside of work, I like to take the opportunity to wind down and enjoy time with my family.
A typical working day for me involves engaging with our customers to deliver high-level technical solutions. NetWireless are vendor independent which means I formulate solutions across a wide range of wireless products including Aruba, Cisco, Ekahau, Ruckas and Cambium. I thoroughly enjoy visiting client sites to audit and improve client networks and configurations.
I am very passionate about technology, it’s a game changer regardless of your socio-economic status. I have volunteered in Africa, namely Tanzania and Kenya but also in Europe (Romania) and closer to home in Vietnam working with schools to set up their wireless infrastructure which enables people from lower socio-economic demographics to gain the same technological advantages as Australian children.
My varied role at Netwireless ranges from connecting and fixing RF terminals/barcode scanners to completing wireless site surveys. The best thing about working at NetWireless is the cohesiveness of the team. Together, we are second to none. I personally pride myself on my esteemed customer service which normally involves a good chat and really getting to know NetWireless’ awesome customers.
On a personal note, I love music, some people might call me a music buff but I just like listening to a range of sounds, particularly progressive rock. If I could listen to any album repeatedly it would be Pink Floyd “Wish you were here”.
My role within the team involves a number of varied admin, co-ordination, financial and customer service tasks. I very much enjoy my role and being part of a great team within a relaxed and enjoyable working environment.
Outside of work, I love personal development and providing life coaching support. I also have a son, Max who keeps me busy.
