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 along with my love of nature and exploration. And as I've ventured further into both, I've taken up the task of documenting the culture and landscapes that I've been witness to, learning more of the art and science of photography as I go along.

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