Alex Preston
Software Developer

Alex joined the team at BlueSky in 2020 as a work experience placement, but has since taken on a full time role as a software developer. He has a Degree (with Honours) in Mechanical Engineering, and spent 5 years as a Project Engineer mainly in the brewing and dairy industries - where he managed large, multi-million dollar projects dealing with the installations and commissioning of packaging lines for beer and milk products.

In that time, Alex cultivated an interest in programming, and began pursuing it in his spare time. He finally decided to switch careers at the end of 2019, and moved back to Perth from Sydney to follow this passion. Alex is currently undertaking a diploma course in Computer Science at UWA to help facilitate that switch from Engineering to Software.

When Alex isn't thrashing the keys of his computer keyboard, he can be found smashing the drums playing in a number of bands. He also has a thirst for travel, having hiked all over North & South America, Europe, Nepal, and South East Asia - which are his favourite areas to explore.
