I  joined MS only 5 months ago in the position of Recruitment Manager having had experience in both the teleco and professional services space.I absolutely love my new role here as you get to work with some really cool people, people who are passionate about our technology, but also so focused on working together as a team.

Outside of my day job,  I have a couple of passions, 1) my new wife Kerry, 2) my new house in the inner west of Sydney 3) riding my sports bike with friends and 4) playing video games…. fitting all this in during a normal week keeps me  well and truely out of trouble !!!…
