To help the greater community, I help companies realise the world of adaptivity by making ubiquitous computing as natural as breathing.
Empowering organizations to optimize Speed, Scale & Margin via foggy cloud structures and innovation with Zero Impact to production systems.
[ Speed ]: 1 Week @ NTT Data (Japan) eliminated 4 months of overtime commitment per year
[ Scale ] : 1 Month @ Cook Medical (Australia) a geographically diverse Google, Azure, VMWare (on-prem) able to operate as a unified single cloud.
[ Margin ]: 6 Months @ Vodafone Hutchinson (Australia) direct saving of $1.6 million over 3 years.
Combining the strategic approaches above with a plethora of IT knowledge, I am regularly invited to speak at events such as: CeBit (Australia), Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Brisbane, HackerX (Brisbane), Venture Summit (USA), Chief Data & Analytics Officer (Melbourne), TechCrunch (USA)
Ranked at TechCrunch USA 2018 as one of the World's Top 10 in Containerization for authoring of Cyvive (Operational & Governance Platform for Kubernetes) and implementing Fathomable through the co-ordination of 3 Universities & 35 Industry Publications to create an Open Source MicroService Configuration Language
Currently available for contracting, consulting, speaking engagements such as keynotes, panel discussions, roundtables and workshop sessions.
— a year
Providers: Bare Metal, AWS, GCP, Alibaba, Azure
Situation: Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in advanced implementations (enterprise) assumes companies have well established CI approaches following GitOps while requiring IaaC, CD, MicroService Governance and Kubernetes to operate as a Data Center replacement.
Outcome: Cyvive allows MicroService Governance & CD to be implemented in any Kubernetes installation, or upgrade and optimize Cloud Providers to enable Kubernetes as a Data Center replacement.
— 14 days
Situation: Rapidly growing startup required an IaaC environment to deploy their entire development stack including CI & CD against different GCP Projects.
Outcome: IaaC deployed against any GCP project via Terraform from a single 'setup.sh' in the project's multi-repo
— 2 years
Situation: MicroService Dependency, Configuration & Secrets Management was non-existent. A few isolated approaches existed, but nothing with permanence.
Outcome: Partnering with 3 Universities and 35 Industry Publications, a Universal MicroService Language using Machine Learning was created & Open Sourced.
Documentation has been merged as 'Governance' in Cyvive.
— 6 months
Providers: VMWare, AWS, Windows Containers
Situation: Virtual Machine based Java tech stack via Oracle Service Bus on N-Tier & Domain Driven Architecture.
Outcome: Foundation for Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Architecture, with appropriate development practices
— 10 months
Providers: VMWare, AWS, GCP
Situation: Developing MicroServices against CNCF architecture without business buy-in & while encountering difficulty in approving the use of Kubernetes due to persistent storage requirements.
Outcome: All business stakeholders unanimously agreed on using Kubernetes for MicroServices & Storage.
— 4 months
Providers: AWS, GCP
Situation: First Enterprise in Brisbane to implement CNCF & Kubernetes. Lacked any ability to install, integrate or operate Kubernetes.
Outcome: AZ aware Enterprise Grade Kubernetes implementation with Disaster Recovery & suitable CI/CD pipelines
— 2 months
Providers: Azure, GCP, AWS, Bare Metal
Situation: Globally distributed manufacturing facilities operating on different cloud providers needed to be transparently stitched together ensuring MicroService reallocation and Service Discovery.
Outcome: HashiCorp's Consul integrated with technology from eBay ensured a global datacenter-aware service discovery approach with dynamic bridging tunnels automatically established between Kubernetes clusters
— 7 months
Providers: Bare Metal, AWS
Situation: Security concerns for pre-release mobiles, OS & application upgrade compatibility with existing devices.
Outcome: Physical devices were placed in remote geographically disperse data-centres. Achieved in partnership with Perfecto Mobile
— a month
Providers: Bare Metal
Situation: Every Quarter significant application updates were released, following a Waterfall and large compatibility footprint required extreme hour commitments from staff for 1 month out of every quarter.
Outcome: Cloud Computing practices reduced time commitment to office hours with all regular quarterly deliverables achieved in 2-week time-frames.
— 2 years
Platforms: Bare Metal, AWS
Situation: WordPress powered Micro-PaaS focused on Start-Up business.
Outcome: Cheapest to run, most secure, reliable and scalable WordPress hosting technology of the time.
This technology was retired when Kubernetes 1.6 was released and Fathomable created in its stead
— 2 years
Situation: Smart Power Meters were to be rolled out by all Electricity Providers within the State of Victoria. Mesh Networking technology was unproven due to IoT being an emerging technology and company due to government mandate had zero tolerance of failure for this $300 million project.
Outcome: Spent 6 weeks with networking vendor (SilverSpring Networks) to accelerate stability & lifespan of Mesh Networking technology. All Government deadlines were achieved on-time while present on the project

— a year
Australia's first Ubiquitous Computing MeetUp, in partnership with Michael Page (Brisbane)
A conference specifically targeted at Artifical Intelligence, Machine Learning and high levels of autonomy thorughout organizaitons.
As the sole author of Cyvive.io's beta release. An infusing of security, immutability and deep optimization of Kubernetes across bare metal and all major cloud providers. Resulted in this recognition.
