Get to know him a little better by reading his Q&A below.
SS: I grew up in a creative home, my mother is an artist, and so I was exposed to that environment my whole childhood. I did pretty well academically at school, particularly around STEM subjects, but I also loved the arts. When it came time to enrol in university I chose Computer Science as it would give me the best opportunity to express myself, and it could open opportunities into the vast array of avenues within technology.
SS: I have worked in many industries, from startups to large mining companies, which has afforded me the opportunity to work with some wonderful people, great technology and some purposeful products: VAPAR encompasses all of these great qualities. After meeting Michelle and Amanda and understanding the purpose behind VAPAR and all it wants to achieve, it really was an obvious choice.
Any tips for anyone wanting a career in technology ??
SS: Invest in a great coffee machine, and you’ll save a small fortune.
