He is curious about the latest developments in technology and loves helping customers understand where they can be used to solve important business problems. Welcome Evan!
Now that we have a bit of a background, let’s see if we can get to know these two on a personal level with 5 quick questions.
Q: Outside of Intellify offices, what is one thing you can boast about being good at?
EC: I’m pretty good at watching sports – there’s not many I don’t enjoy.
RS: Music – I play six different instruments – and languages – I studied in Japan for four years so I try to speak Japanese whenever I can.
Q: What was the last book you read?
EC: Bad Blood, John Carreyrou (on Audible of course!)
RS: The Rational Optimist by Matt Ridley.
Q: When you were in school, what did you want to be when you grew up?
EC: #9 for the Socceroos.
RS: An engineer. I’ve always wanted to build things.
Q: What’s the best piece of professional advice you’ve ever received?
EC: ‘Google AWS’
RS: The world of professional services and engineering is very small. Keeping good relationships and networks is the key. Not only to learn more from others but also to grow and influence.
Q: How do you relax after work?
EC: Play with the kids!
RS: That’s a tough one. I usually don’t (haha). Maybe go to the gym, listen to music, or catch up with friends and family.
Thanks Evan and Reza for telling us a bit more about yourselves. We are excited to see what your experience and knowledge can bring to Intellify to keep us growing and thriving as Australia’s leading consultancy for Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence.
