Hi, I’m Wayne, a senior technology leader and energy expert passionate about playing my part in creating a low cost and sustainable energy future.

In 2019, I left the corporate world to be a stay at home dad, support my wife’s desire to scale her business, and to write the follow-up to my last book, The Digital Utility.

My new book provides a framework to help CIO’s build IT leadership Teams capable of delivering the Digital Energy Transformation.

I am a bestselling author, a sought-after speaker, a lecturer at the Asian Institute of Technology, and an award-winning green technology blogger. I was recognised as a ‘Smart Energy Elite’ by leading industry magazine Metering & Smart Energy International in 2019 and 2015.

I’ve led 20+ smart energy initiatives in Australia and Asia-Pacific over the past 20 years, including Southeast Asia’s first and award-winning end-to-end smart metering and demand response program.  More recently I was the General Manager of Technology Strategy at the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) where we developed the Digital Transformation Roadmap.

I am married with four children and live in Geelong.
