Bio

I’m an ICT Teacher & Business Owner who loves helping self-learners.

Born & raised in Queensland, Australia where I grew up loving video games which lead me to build my own computers & discovering the vast ever-changing world of technology.

While at High School I began studying IT which lead to falling in love with web design, not only the creative aspect but I was fascinated by code. This lead to my further study’s in web technology which would be the start of my professional journey.

At the time, business was the last thing on my mind, instead, I spent all my energy on travelling adventures with my family, which was amazing, I’ve always got travelling on the horizon. New York, Singapore, New Zealand are a few of the places we’ve visited.

Then business entered, first up was a partnership, a digital design & marketing duo, I learnt a lot of valuable lessons from that journey, a lot. After that I went solo & began trading as a freelance style business, things really picked up & I started making really great connections.

All that networking led to passing around regular work to other small businesses, so we all joined forces to form our own supergroup. Then we made it official and we started our first company together as a full-fledged digital media marketing agency.

Along this business journey, a teaching position back where I studied IT opened up. I got qualified to teach which led me to now talking IT & business to students, sharing my experiences and teaching curriculum.

Now I’m teaching part-time, balancing my duties in the business, keeping up with my own professional development, and of course my own personal responsibilities, it all keeps me pretty busy. Which leads me to this space.
