"The people at Fitzroy IT are really chill but surprisingly productive"
I make websites, data migrations, and other business applications the client needs. I love the good vibes at Fitzroy IT, the passion our team has for the job, the pool table, and free drinks!
I like to enjoy every moment (this is one thing I like about working here – you can tell everyone enjoys the moment!) Other hobbies: playing piano, guitar (bass guitar soon), hiking, dancing salsa, travelling around the world, watching old movies, listening to all kinds of music, and trying new food every week.

staying active (running, gymnastics, strength training), and tasting food all over Melbourne!
"Fitzroy IT has such a positive vibe - working here always inspires me to be as creative as I can be.
