The Unlikely Sherpas

Previous work

Over the last ten years of my career I've had the chance to hone my skills in a range of industries from healthcare to local, state, and federal government organisations.

I've worked with small agile teams, as well as larger enterprise engineering teams for each of Australia's national public service broadcasters, ABC and SBS, helping to build web applications and publishing services that keep millions of Australians informed.

You can find a detailed list of my work history on LinkedIn, get an idea of my code style and repo housekeeping on GitHub, or simply download my résumé in PDF format below.

  • My interest in photography flourished over the years together with my love for exploration and nature.

    As I've further enjoyed the privilege of seeing the world, I've adopted the task of sharing the culture and landscapes I've been privy to, leaning more on the art and science of photography as I go along.

    I publish a selection of photos on my alternate Instagram account, @kashis.photo or on Flickr.
