About the Author

My life journey has taken me around a many corners, but it has led me to a career that I now thoroughly enjoy. Having served in the Royal Australian Navy for 10 years as an Electronics Technician, I was introduced to this new thing called ‘The Internet’ in 1996. Curiosity got the better of me an I desperately wanted to learn more about this new thing. The natural progression was into the world of Information Technology. Many years later and having been exposed to many different industries, I find myself wanting to give back share my knowledge with the next generation of IT guru’s. So I took the next career change and became a Vocational Educator delivering the Diploma in Web Development and Design at TAFE. After major skin cancer scare and operation in 2011, I got a little impatient lying around and doing nothing (and after the painkillers wore off) for a week. So what else do you do? start teaching yourself mobile application development of course! This led me to complete a Post Graduate Certificate in Mobile Application development. Whilst teaching adult students for several years, I started to see there was a difference in how they learnt and how the teachers around me were facilitating. An opening at the college I worked at became available – and I was now in the eLearning world. Since then I have developed a passion for technology based learning and especially in the adult learning world. I’ve also completed a Post Graduate Vocational Certificate in Digital Education and written a book called The Seven Year Education Itch covering what I’ve discovered about adult learning with technology. In my spare time I love to research new technologies for education as well as spend time with my family. I love to get away on my Triumph Tiger 800, just to checkout those corners in my journey I may have missed.
