I am a legal technologist that leverages deep understanding of legal process and love of new technologies to deliver exceptional results in unexpected ways.
My work has been recognised in the 2017 Legal Innovation Index, placing as a finalist, as well as by the Financial Times’ Asia-Pacific Innovative Lawyer Awards 2016, placing as ‘Highly Commended’ in the technology category.
In addition to my work at Alpha Creates, I am also the founder of Sydney Legal Hackers, Sydney’s local chapter of a global movement of lawyers, policymakers, technologists, and academics who explore and develop creative solutions to some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of law and technology. Our chapter has hosted a node of the Computational Law + Blockchain Festival in each of the last two years – a weekend of learning and sharing between audience, expert speakers and thought leaders – the output of which has been published in the Stanford Journal of Blockchain Law & Policy.
I was also an organiser of the Sydney node of the inaugural Global Legal Hackathon in 2018.
I regularly chair, speak, or participate in panels at legal innovation conferences. In 2019 I am chairing the Legal Mavericks conference and speaking at a number of conferences, including the Law Society of NSW FLIP Conference and ALPMA Summit. In 2018 I presented the opening keynote at the Legal & Innovation Techfest in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2017 I presented at the Sydney Legal Innovation and Tech Fest, the IBA Annual Conference, the Chief Innovation Officer Summit, the Lawyers Weekly Future Forum, and the Artificial Intelligence in Legal Practice Summit.
I also deliver Continuous Professional Development sessions to clients and colleagues. The content for these sessions, which also forms the basis for my articles and thought pieces, is drawn from topical issues of law and technology.
