G’day, and thanks for stopping by! I’m an Australian technology journalist and I’ve written for some of the country’s most popular publications including The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper, Australian PC User and APC magazines. I was contributing editor to PC User from 2001 to until the magazine’s closure in 2012 and continue to contribute stories to TechLife and APC magazines.
I’ve received numerous awards in recent years for my work including the Australian IT Journalist of the Year award in 2005 and again in 2008. I’ve also received the award for Best Technical Journalist nine times (2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013 and 2014) and Best Technology Reviewer four times (2004, 2006, 2008 and 2014). The Australian IT Journalism Awards are Australia’s most prestigious awards for IT journalism. For more details, see http://thelizzies.com.
I’m a big believer in further education – I have a Bachelors’ degree in Electronics, a Masters’ degree in Software Design and Development and a Honours (Class-1) degree in Data Science.
About this website
This will be where I put up some of my findings, thoughts, tips and tricks as much for my own memory’s sake as anyone else’s. In the future, I’ll also be throwing up some of the growing number of software tools I’ve developed. Some will reside here, others on separate websites – we’ll see how we go.
