Paul is a co-founder of Nymmbl and a software engineer with 29 years of experience. He managed multi-million dollar projects and lead teams of up to 12 software engineers.
Following a decision to move to rural Australia, Paul consulted for over six years on highly technical projects on voice- and video-over IP.
His experience includes embedded Linux in the kernel and user space, WiFi, audio processing on ARM processors, SoC architecture and design, audio processing and embedded RTOS software.
He then decided to take the first step to fulfill his dream of building his own software company. Hence, Nymmbl was created. The co-founders’ philosophy is to build something that they would like to use. Their first product, Margaret River Find the Fun, is just that.
To show the flexibility of their software to adapt to different content layouts, two more guide types have been developed. Their second product is a complete and interactive guide for the beautiful and underutilized Cape to Cape Track in the Southwest of Western Australia, and their 3rd guide describes all of the local mountain bike trail networks from Dunsborough and Busselton, south to Augusta and east to Nannup.
When not developing software, Paul can be found on his bikes, hiking or free diving. He is also an avid photographer, and has taken many of the photos used in their Apps and websites. When he travels internationally, he follows his passion of snowboarding, rock climbing and mountaineering in stunning and isolated areas.
Rhonda is a co-founder of Nymmbl and a former biotech scientist working on Multiple Sclerosis, intestinal cancer, lymphomas and cancer genetics. She managed multi-million dollar toxicology programs for a medium-sized biotech company before moving onto one of the world’s leading cancer genetics groups.
There she was a senior project manager on many cutting-edge cancer genetics projects, as well as the scientific writer for over 110 employees. She helped to secure millions of dollars of funding using her grant-writing skills.
After moving to rural Australia, she consulted to several medical communications companies, where she attended international conferences and wrote proceedings that were distributed to experts in the field. She also wrote various educational tools for GPs, nurses, specialists and patients.
Rhonda now focuses on growing Nymmbl. She is experienced in project management, writing & editing, developing websites, working in professional circles and in promoting technologies at grass roots and executive levels.
Their software was designed to be easy to use by anyone with limited technical ability, and that is their key point of difference. Her goal is to see tourism regions and guidebook authors across Australia and the world adopt their technology. It's affordable, quick and easy to create an extremely reliable App with them using their in-depth understanding of the technology and their knowledge of visitors expectations for a useful electronic guide.
When not sitting in front of her computer, Rhonda can be found riding her bikes, hiking or gardening. When she travels internationally, she enjoys cycling, rock climbing and hiking in beautiful mountain settings.
