Starting Afresh

Well it’s been a whirlwind couple of months. After 3 years working at Betfair in London I have decided to move on and seek a new challenge.

This new challenge was never just going to involve only some small change since it was always going to involve moving my family from UK to Australia. I’ve lived in London all my life and the opportunity to live in Sydney and see friends and relatives I haven’t seen for years was too good. Upping sticks was never going to be easy but even with the amazing friends I have left behind I think I would have regretted staying and not taking on this adventure.

My entry into Australia has been eased by doing some consultancy for the Australian arm of Betfair which has lessened some of the traditional concerns of the newly arrived – like paying the bills! While it’s awesome it’s also only (and deliberately) a time limited arrangement since I feel it’s time to look for something new and it would be too easy to stay with what I know.

So here I am on the North Shore of the Harbour City, rocking out in the gorgeous weather and wondering what’s around that next corner. Whatever it is, it’s gonna be great!
