I have been involved in the internet space for nearly 2 decades and in that time, I’ve had dealings with just about every telecommunications company in New Zealand (and Australia) either directly or indirectly.
In February 2016, I was honoured to be invited to be a trustee of NZNog where since joining I have been involved in two successful conferences and the scouting and planning of three events.
My skills are particularly good in entrepreneurship having been an owner of three successful companies; meaning, planning, budgeting, doing what is necessary & always keeping eye on the ball to make something successful which is what I can bring to the table.
I have an extensive knowledge of the industry and have a great understanding of those that use it, or at least manage it, such as connecting with people and peering etc.
Many years ago, I used to run, and still do (while very outdated) ispmap.co.nz which was a means to show the peering of NZ ISP’s, since then much more advanced and pretty looking BGP tools have become available.
While it is not my intention to re-write tools that have become available, I come up with some great ideas; given the resources to help take them to the next level, could be advantageous of NZIX.
In closing, I would love the opportunity to be part of NZIX and ensuring its stability & growth continue for generations to come.
I can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone has any questions they wish to ask.
