My name is Tessa. I live in New Zealand and currently work for VMware as a Partner Solutions Engineer. This is a personal blog about my experiences working with technology and in the IT industry. Any opinions expressed on this site are purely my own and do not represent the opinions of VMware.

Over the past 4 years I have been involved in running VMware Certification study groups in Singapore (where I lived for 7 years) and more recently in New Zealand. I will share study group facilitator guides and links to study resources on this blog so that anyone who wants to can run one in their own community.

I love learning about new developments in Science and in technology. Before joining the Tech Industry I studied Physics at University and worked as a Science Communicator, demonstrating physics concepts to High School students. I am passionate about Science Education and Communication.

My favorite sub-fields in tech are where the boundaries of Physics, IT Architecture and Software Development meet. I will be spending time developing skills in these areas – in particular IoT and Edge Computing, Machine Learning and Quantum Computing. I plan to post about my adventures in this space in the coming months.

I have maintained a current VCP-DCV certification through 4,5, and 6. Other certifications that I hold include VCP-NV, VCAP-DCV 5, TOGAF Foundations and AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate.
