Adam Shand

Adam has been working in a mixture of technology, management and business for the last twenty years. He launched one of the first internet providers in New Zealand and during the dotcom years managed the infrastructure team for one of the largest internet providers in America. As the high tech bubble crumbled he was creating a volunteer driven nonprofit company which worked with local businesses to provide free wireless internet for their neighbourhoods. In 2003 he moved home to work for Weta Digital as a systems administrator on the "Lord of the Rings" and ended up as an IT manager for "King Kong and "Avatar". He has just returned from two years traveling and is currently pursuing a new interest in permaculture and living sustainably.
