G'day there, I'm Luke S Thompson
Merlot DigitalThe Network Crew Pty Ltd

Eco-friendly technical ventures

I’m all ears to help where I’m able to.

Charge forwards, and soar upwards.

Bespoke solutions, unique perspectives & modern ideas.

Beyond the core of my day-to-day work around Linux Systems Engineering, automation, Data Centres and IPv4/v6 networking, I’m a Technology-focused Leader with a passion for excellence.

Dedicated to our customers and crew, I’m results-driven and remain committed to transparency, integrity & delivering value.

Me in a nutshell:

  • Dad with 2 girls ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง
  • Chief Technical Officer
  • Getting it right the first time
  • Discovering, Automating, Refining
  • Making a difference (Carbon-negative)
  • Interested; always eager to continue learning

Once told I couldn't, I was ready.

Embracing every moment & nurturing great people & ideas is half the work.

Data Centres & Networks

Linux Systems Engineering

Corporate Strategy (TNC)

Earth-first Technologies

Growth & Sustainability

Business consultancy

Software Engineering

Process Automation

Dedicating my time, delivering results.

Consulting engagements.

Where I have time available between operational and client workloads, occasionally I take consulting contracts where I can deliver value to a client/group who wants to “level up”.

I don’t believe in consulting where the client doesn’t really want the help. Please say g’day if you’re interested so we can have a chat and discuss any potential opportunities!


Expert guidance 24/7

I’ve worked all over, from Tech Support through to auditing Legal Firms’ IT.


Continuous improvement

Settling down & becoming numb to change is how you stop innovating. I refuse.


Executive leadership

People empower people, though they need focus and appreciation. It’s all human.


Disruptive & Automated

Our planet needs help, automation makes sense, & employees should enjoy life.

Working for a better lifestyle.

My businesses are genuine, for-people, caring for the planet.

Many of my interests are based around the ICT ecosystem, and it’s naturally a very power-hungry beast. All of my efforts are mindful of their impacts, with all carbon emissions off-set then credited, leaving us contributing positively (carbon-negatively) to the environment. Not for us, but for the future generations.
