Marcus has been active in the Perth startup scene since 2011, and has been a passionate enthusiast for the community ever since. Involved in startups since about 1995, (but we didn’t call them startups back then, they were small businesses for a while, then SME’s), Marcus is a code monkey by trade and inclination, and has been writing software products for over 20 years. He wouldn’t claim to be any good at it, but knows what being bad looks like. In 2017/18 he was CEO of the Phnom Penh Post in Cambodia. Read articles Marcus has written.
