What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
A boss once told me “Assumptions are the mother of all stuff ups.”
Name a place you have never been to and would like to visit. Why?
One of my future goals is to ride a motorcycle from Anchorage Alaska across to Canada and down the entire West Coast of America to San Diego, hopefully with one of my close friends to enjoy the experience.
Who or What inspires you?
One person who comes to mind is Roger Federer. He has been at the top of his game, passionate and above all you never see him disrespect others or complain when he has been beaten when he gave his best.
What is one of the biggest challenges facing energy customers today?
New and exciting technologies can be both a blessing and a curse. Batteries, Solar and Wind are growing in generation every year, however this requires upfront investment in time and money and ensuring the return is worthwhile.
What does a typical day look like for you at Edge?
As an early starter, I get in around 7 am and the first thing I will do is check all our systems for any outages or data files that have not arrived for the day. Then we plan our day and what features we are going to work on that adds value to our customers as well as enhancing any existing systems to make them more robust. Each day throws different challenges and new opportunities which makes my role exciting, which is what I love about working at Edge.
