Asset AI™ (NSW Government)

AWS Big Data Machine Learning Civic Tech

Asset AI™ is a $2.9 million prototype civic-tech product led by the NSW Government. It aims to predict deterioration, streamline maintenance and get to better outcomes for public road infrastructure.

As a Technical Advisor, I guided the product's solution architecture, cloud infrastructure, DevOps, and security processes. I led 20 hours of user-centred-design interviews to better understand customer pain-points and prioritise product features.



Python Amazon Web Services Terraform Typescript Integration Development DataBricks

I supported the development of a software stack to perform real-time energy-market operations in the Australian National Electricity Market.

I built highly-available, fault-tolerant, asynchronous integration applications to ingest data in real-time from external data sources and on-premises data centres to cloud environments.

I brought DevOps best practices to the project team, by building automated CI/CD pipelines, test suites and workflows for static security analysis.

NSW Government

Rules as Code (NSW Government)

Rules as Code OpenFisca Regulation Tech Python

I worked with the NSW Government and Code for Australia to explore the regulation-tech concept of "Rules as Code". I built two prototype full-stack applications to demonstrate the value of Rules as Code using real-world policies administered by the NSW Government. I co-authored a Technical Roadmap which is being used to inform ongoing development activities.

A huge part of this engagement was knowledge transfer; helping government to adopt modern technologies and agile delivery methods - a value I espouse in all my projects.



Stripe Payment processing Adyen Klarna Chargebee

I integrated the Klarna payment method into the existing payment gateway for Callaly's subscription e-commerce business. This required exquisite planning, documentation and testing to ensure a seamless migration.

Maximising conversion rate is paramount for any payment integration. I achieved this by streamlining the payment process and widening the range of payment methods.
