I’m a full time Software Tester and a part time poet. On this blog you would see both jostling for articulation,which is potentially a reflection of my head space.
Having started my Testing career in 2004, with testing C++ APIs for desktop licensing applications, I have tested web applications for Doctors, mission critical systems for Fire fighters, ERP systems for Builders, .NET based applications for providing a better casino gaming experience for Grandmas. I have worked with an equal passion (but varying success) across Product development organisations, Consultancies and public sector.
I am grateful to have had opportunities to serve as a Test coach, people leader, technical mentor and now a Test Manager with Assurity Consulting in Christchurch, New Zealand.
I am driven by the success of people around me, am a keen student of organisational behaviour and firmly believe that we can be better craftsmen by being better humans first.
