You’ve probably met or spoken with at least a few of our motley crew (see their ‘official’ profiles here), and will know they’re super efficient in their Pytha Partner roles.  In this feature, however, we’re sharing some random team facts that may (or may not?) surprise you, and could be handy information for some buttering up or bribery.

Michael Rowe | Manager

Where it all began…

I was born in La Perouse on the south-east side of Sydney and grew up in Liverpool, Sydney.

Passions and pastimes…

Any sport with a ball in it, and of course, PYTHA 3D CAD.

Favourite place…

Queenstown, New Zealand. It’s famous for its beautiful landscapes and scenery and it has great atmosphere.

Where we’ll find you after work…

On the bowling green.

Random Fact…

I can Dance… Modern Jive.

Vikki Rowe | Director

Where it all began…

I grew up in Glen Waverley, Melbourne. In my mid 20s I moved to Brisbane for several years before landing in Sydney.

Passions and pastimes…

Creating happy memories for my daughter and teaching her to be both kind and strong.

Favourite place…

I have been lucky enough to travel and live in a number of places overseas. I lived in Bolivia as a student and because of my experience, this country, despite its many challenges, will always be a special place. It’s a beautiful, mystical, complicated country.

Where we’ll find you after work…

Listening to true crime podcasts and making lists of all the things I didn’t get to that day!

Random Fact…

I’m a proud, and possibly confused Victorian at heart, who goes for the Sydney Swans, and will loudly back the Maroons all the way.

Gino Scamardella | Manager

Where it all began…

I was born in Fairfield and grew up around the Fairfield area in the Western Suburbs of Sydney, NSW.

Passions and pastimes…

Soccer. Napoli is my favourite team.

Favourite place…

Port Stephens – I like to go there on holidays with my family.  It’s a beautiful place to unwind, go fishing, go to the beach and spend quality time with my family.

Where we’ll find you after work…

On the soccer field, coaching young up and coming players.

Random Fact…

When I meet people for the first time I seem to always get asked ‘Do I know you?’ or ‘Have I met you before?’. People say that my face always looks so familiar to them, even if I have never met them before. Maybe I have a doppelganger out there posing as me…?

Katie Sayour | Technical Services Specialist

Where it all began…

I was born at King George V at Camperdown. I grew up in Orange which is located in Central Western NSW.

Passions and pastimes…

Music, games, Lego and driving.

Favourite place…

Edinburgh, the history that is the city.

Where we’ll find you after work…

Building Lego sets with my husband (we are working on a street scene). If I’m not building Lego, then PlayStation is my go-to.

Random Fact…

My wedding was Lego themed and that occurred way before the Lego Masters show existed, so Everything was Awesome.

Paul Hadfield | Trainer and Implementation Specialist

Where it all began…

I was born at St George Hospital, Kogarah, and grew up in Kogarah Bay, Sydney NSW.

Passions and pastimes…

Cars, Snakes, Tattoos and the building industry.

Favourite place…

Forster until it became too populated. Illuka on the north coast of NSW – it’s a great fishing spot and it’s great downtime.

Where we’ll find you after work…

I try to travel as much as I can to see Australia. During the weeknights, though, I pretty much hibernate during the winter months.

Random Fact…

I love Sci-Fi movies and books.

Michael Dominick | Technical Specialist

Where it all began…

I was born in Sydney at the Royal North Shore Hospital and I grew up on Sydney’s North Shore.

Passions and pastimes…

Food, friends, family and art.

Favourite place…

Naoshima Island Japan, great food, great art and great architecture. It’s quite isolated and not very populated.

Where we’ll find you after work…

Sleeping….

Random Fact…

I used to be a hairdresser, and no, I can’t cut your hair. 😊

Tam Hinchy | Office and Sales Administration

Where it all began…

I was born in Sutherland Hospital l and grew up in the Sutherland Shire, Sydney, NSW.

Passions and pastimes…

Enjoying life.

Favourite place…

Japan. The highlights for me were Nozawa Onsen Ski Fields, riding the bullet train and visiting Osaka and Kyoto.

Where we’ll find you after work…

On my boat, cruising around Port Hacking in Southern Sydney.

Random Fact…

‘Just ask me – I’m connected.’ It seems to be that whenever someone needs something done, I’ve always got just the right contact in my little black book. If you want a tradesperson (Electrician, Air Con, Plumber), a CEO’s number or that special dinner reservation with an ocean view, I’m bound to know someone that can make it happen.

Kim Girdlestone | Marketing and Business Development

Where it all began…

I grew up in suburbia, Padstow, Sydney, NSW. However, I’ve spent most of my adult life living by the beach in Cronulla where I’ve felt most at home.

Passions and pastimes…

Music, music and more music, either playing, listening to or watching. I’m also into films & TV series, photography, videography, graphic design and apps.

Favourite place…

Barcelona, Spain. I lived there for three months and it was so culturally vibrant that I never wanted to leave.

Where we’ll find you after work…

I’ll most likely be singing and playing guitar at a music venue, wine bar or pub around Sydney. Or I’ll be spending quality time with the fam.

Random Fact…

If I have met you before you would surely know this one and if not … well, I’m 6 feet tall, and the phrases I hear the most are ‘Gee, your tall’ and ‘Do you play Basketball?’
