The Interview

My geeky passion is

Smart home tech. My house is a chaotic mess of experimental tech, much to the annoyance of my family who can never remember which interface to use to turn on the lights! Thankfully for them, locks and security remain analog. 

The best advice I can give a current or future ThoughtWorker is

At some point in your TW career, you will be asked to participate in something completely unexpected (i.e. moving to another country, starting a new office, using tech to help cure cancer). Say yes at least once. It will change your life!

With ThoughtWorks, I've visited

Canada, US, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, China, UK, India, & Singapore
