Hey Everyone!

I’m (not so) new here!

I've worked with the Atlassian suite for nearly half a decade, and even attended the Summit in Las Vegas last year, but more recently I’ve taken up a big interest in getting involved with the online community, so here’s a belated, G’day!

I’m a Platform Architect for Uhub (based in London), supporting and helping Global Creatives Agencies get work done! I’m part of a team of Atlassian Experts based around the globe. We leverage the Atlassian suite, helping optimise, configure and maintain the tools for around 10’000 users. I specialise in Atlassian administration, training and on boarding of new agencies and clients to our platform.

Previously I worked with the UK Government to help develop and modernise ways of working, streamlining processes and reducing paper work, all of which were supported by leveraging of Atlassian tools and agile methodology.

For the personal part - Here’s a few fun facts:

  • I was born in the coastal town of Barry, Wales (more affectionately known as Barrybados by locals)
  • I hold black belt in the arts of Taekwondo
  • I’m a certified accountant (not so fun)
  • Moved to the Big Smoke of London 4 years ago
  • I help build and race a Mini Cooper in my spare time

That’s all I can think of for now..

It’s great to be a part of this community, and as I witnessed at Summit last year - there is a genuine spirit of cooperation all revolving around supporting users and improving the ways we can enable our users to get work done here! I’m looking forward to contributing and getting more involved in the online community

Ps, I’m also attending the Atlassian Summit this year… And very much looking forward to catching up with old faces, and meeting new ones! See ya there!

Lastly…

Welcome Seon! Certainly appreciate your interest in the Community as I am currently putting together a Theater talk where @Russell Zera and I will be presenting "The Community - what is it and why should I care?" It is good to know that people do care. ;-)

glad you enjoyed summit last year! It was my first time attending summit and I'm so glad it was in Las Vegas. Not only is it only a 90 minute flight from the Bay Area, but it's Las Vegas, always a fun place. 

 

Hope to see you at summit this year!

Hey @Anthony Wu, couldn’t agree more! 90 minute flight sounds dreamy! A little longer for me from London… but 100% worth the slight jet lag! Very excited for this year, and hope to see you there!
