Originally from New Zealand, Leon has travelled the world – Paris, Barcelona and London are his favourites. He once met Brian Lara who used his horse mask to scare the Zimbabwean Cricket Team! Somehow, he can fall both down AND up the stairs!

Technical Support

He has lost his last 4 girlfriends to the same video game – what’s with that? He starts his day with a fresh box of banana based fruit salad! He lost both his molars in a freak skateboarding accident – then he became a total nerd.

Senior Business Development Manager

Simon Goldberg

 

He won the premiership of the first ever touch football league in Australia. He has hiked up Mt Vesuvius and his pupils aren’t round!

System Administrator

Todd Barnsley

 

He’s kind of a big deal. He has many leather-bound books and his apartment smells of rich mahogany. His collection of vintage skateboards is eclipsed only by his collection of vinyl records. Don’t act like you’re not impressed…
