My true passion is finding new ways that digital capability can make people’s live easier, better and richer.


Why I love My Optus Community: My experience tells me that people are,  for the most part,  inherently social and community minded beings. Be it in the physical, or increasingly, the online world, it is  part of our DNA is to help others.  Communities like the My Optus Community provide the conduit to connect people with similar interests or facing related problems. The willingness to share knowledge with people you’ve never met blows me away every day.
