I am a programmer, originally from the UK but I have been operating out Melbourne for a couple of years now. Out of hours I do pretty much the same thing as I do as a Director at Snowball One, which is code. Home does usually involve more beer - which I brew myself.
I am driven by staying ahead of the curve and figured out long ago that this was in my genes. I grew up in an analogue advertising world and became involved in the Macintosh revolution from day one as the communications world change quickly and forever. Throughout this journey I have developed a unique set of skills that has helped me sharpen my approach to solving problems and implementing practical solutions for clients.
I have worked in design all my life specialising in FMCG packaging design, which has now evolved into ‘brand design’. What drives me is a passion for NPD and innovation borne out of insights and gut feel. What excites me about this transition into the digital world is that it is continually innovating at a rate of knots as new frontiers open up every day, hour, minute …I am fortunate that the Snowball One team is ahead of the curve!
I'm Francis and I've been with Snowball for what seems like forever now. :) I have been developing for a few years and just love it when a plan comes together. I have found a few of life's lessons since working at Tangent: Integrating with eBay is, well... interesting. If all else fails, make some tea. Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.
