With 25 years of experience in information technology (IT), Andrew has worked across a variety of work settings from small start-ups to big corporations and telecommunication companies including Telstra, ANZ, Coles Myer and National Australia Bank.
After completing his Bachelors in Electronics and Computer Systems Engineering from RMIT in 1994, Andrew pursued another degree in theology, after which he further broadened his scope by getting involved in music production.
In 2008, he started his own business, ShareIt Consulting, where he provides design solutions that enable organisations to effectively use information to boost productivity. He later took up tenure at World Vision and worked there for over 6 years.
While his work is spread across a very broad gamut—business management, IT, connecting with people and music—he uses every aspect to provide creative and technical solutions to help organisations grow.
At the Council, Andrew wears a lot of hats, but in a nutshell, he’s a Software Developer in CRM. Undeterred by challenges, Andrew’s job is to be an enterprise architect using technology and bringing the Council’s bright minds together to develop solutions that last. What drives him in his professional journey is solutions—for the company and the customers. This can only be possible through his architectural intellect, patience and investment of time and effort. By bringing his best to work, Andrew recognises how he could elevate the software and take it to the next level through effective problem-solving.
His experience and wealth of knowledge add value to the working of the team as he harmonises IT and brings a better user interface for customers and internal staff.
Behind it all, Andrews is deeply rooted in his overall purpose of equipping and empowering people, which he practices in his day-to-day work.
Being part of a community that creates space to get to know people outside of work which further strengthens positive working relationships. Andrew values the people he works with, and opportunities to develop deeper connections.
He also livens the atmosphere with his razor-sharp wit and dry humour that is thoroughly enjoyed and frequently encouraged by fellow villagers.
Music and gardening are Andrew’s hideaway. Growing up in the country, he’s not one for the corporate jungle and prefers being closer to nature.
But ultimately, his true passion lies in people, as he tries his best and extends himself wherever he can.
