What’s your story?
I grew up in Malinga, a village of two hundred habitants in a small island in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius. The street I used to live in was named after my family and the people in the village were all relatives. I had an awesome childhood up until I lost my dad at the age of 15 due to some unforeseen circumstances which left my family on the edge of becoming homeless. This was a really pivotal moment in my life but I am glad that instead of backing down, I used it as motivation to aim big in life. With the support of my mother and only sister, I went to England to further my education before pursuing a career in digital which lead me to various cities including London, Port Louis, Perth, Darwin and now in Melbourne. I am now married to my awesome wife, Vintee, who is always supporting me with my crazy ideas. We also recently became parents of a daughter, Mishka.

My curiosity, creativeness, willing to learn from others, knowledge sharing and collaboration, while always making sure that our customers are at the heart of everything we do has contributed tremendously to me making a difference. I am also lucky to have worked with some really awesome people including my people leader who is always supporting me in bringing the ideas we have to life. All these factors make it easier to make a difference and making me want to come to work every day to achieve great things for our customers together.
