Sam Hemphill

Sam HemphillSam’s coding career began over 10 years ago when he made the leap from musician and tour manager to full time code guy.

Since this time, he has worked with some of the biggest names in Australia, including Qantas, Coles, News Limited, ANZ, EPA & Accenture.

What makes Meeum different

Digital inclusion and accessibility are cornerstones of who we are and why Meeum was created.

Director Sam Hemphill is a tertiary educator with a reputation for inclusive and accessible curriculum development and has certifications in web accessibility.

Director Elyse Maberley is a non-executive director of two community organisations and has completed National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Worker Orientation. She also holds a current Queensland Government “Yellow Card” (disability worker screening clearance card).

It is our responsibility to create learning environments of mutual exchange, respect, and inclusion.

We are aware that the onus is on us and our team to continually learn from diverse communities outside of our own and refine our practices in response to this knowledge.

We acknowledge that we benefit from the mutual exchange of the work that we do and seek to amplify the voices, work and opportunities of everyone we work with. Where we don’t know, we will always ask, and we strive to create healthy communities of support, collaboration, and exchange.
