About my blog...

Hi - I'm Rick Ktorides, an IT Project Manager based out of Perth, Western Australia.

I started this blog as a creative way of sharing my experiences as a project manager - it's been such an amazing journey!!

It feels great to share knowledge, particularly if you are able to help solve a problem for someone or perhaps provide some inspiration. 

About me...

Ok - so a little about me...ummm

  • Have a love / hate relationship with coffee

  • Insomniac by night - I fill the void by doing various things like project management articles and fluking my way through creating a website 

  • Always seem to grossly underestimate how much time it takes to create's got something to do with going down content rabbit holes...

  • Can't help using exclamation marks in documentation and emails and getting told off for doing so!!

  • Consider MS Excel to be the absolute best application ever - it can do anything!

  • Constantly have 1 million things open on my desktop and only reboot when the system has had enough and decides to crash in desperation...
