When did you get started with Alfex CNC Australia?
I started in in late May 2014.
What did you do before you started with
Over many years, I have had a great deal of experience helping customers get the most from their products and experiences.
Notably, over 18 years with what is now Ricoh, as a technical supervisor and National software support specialist, over Eight years as a director of a Tupperware distributorship, with a span of control of over 350 demonstrators and most recently, a number of years as the NSW lead technician installing and repairing breathalysers for the NSW Police and industry partners.
How would you describe
One big family.
What was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
At Alfex: Visiting Google at their Sydney offices. Ultimate geek session!
At a previous job, I used to build Atomic Emission Mass Spectrometers using the ICP method. This was my first job when I was 17 and involved lots of electronics work.
Tell us about a project you’ve worked on that you’re proud of.
My family (still in progress). I am very proud of my wife and children and how they have become and are becoming the best that they can be. I just do my best so that they can do their best.
How do you balance your career at
Family always comes first, but working at Alfex allows the flexibility needed to do my work and ensure that my family are happy.
An old boss of mine once said (loosely), “I don’t care when you start or finish, but there are two rules. 1. If there is work to be done, do it. 2. Keep our customers happy.
If you won lotto what would you buy?
My house. I think that not having to worry about rent or mortgage would be a wonderful thing.
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us.
I used to be a singer.
I performed in many musical theatre productions, with one being a professional show (really hard work). I was also once rated as one of the best Bass singers in the country (a very long time ago). I haven’t sung in shows for many years though, but I would like to go back to doing some a’cappela singing in the future.
