Biography

"I am passionate about enabling individuals, teams and organisations to connect, learn and create. Employed by the Fogarty Foundation, I am currently leading the Western Australian growth of the CoderDojo program; an open source social education movement that enables free computer programming clubs for children. This involves leadership development, capacity building, managing resources and developing strategic partnerships. I recently completed the Graduate Certificate in Social Impact at the University of Western Australia on scholarship from the National Centre for Social Impact, and am currently studying towards a Masters in Community Development at Murdoch University. My interests include: leadership development, capacity building, participatory culture, open source everything, diversity in technology, soft skills for technologists, cross-sector innovation, engaging youth with STEM subjects and innovation in education. I am passionate about helping others reach their highest potential as creative, positive and collaborative individuals who work with others to make the world a better place "
