Christopher has worked in the technology education sector for the past 10 years, with another 10 prior to that in the multimedia design industry. He has experience in both the private and government sectors, working on large scale programs with international reach. Christopher has led many successful project teams from a greenfield status, as well as coming onboard to a number of halted projects to steer them towards success.
Design only works if it is broken down into the simplest of steps and this is translated for the user. If your product can only be used by an expert, then you’ve built it wrong.
Some notable areas of experience have been working for ACMI (The Australian Centre for the Moving Image) as the lead web designer and systems engineer, and for the AIG Financial and Insurance Corporation as the project manager. More recently Christopher has been working for the Victorian Department of Education, overseeing a number of IT projects including the up-skilling of education employees and students.
In his spare time Christopher enjoys video games and spending time with his family.
