"I started in television as a news cameraman and editor at the age of 18 so I was in a fortunate position to have had some very solid experience before going to film school.

My later 20's were spent editing and shooting corporate, educational and training videos plus the ocasssional broadcast or speciality documentary - something that continues.

In my 30's I started devising print based training materials and workshops as an adjunct to just creating the videos. It provided an integrated experience for the learner from initial introduction to evaluation of the experience - the whole box and dice.

Along the way I took time out to direct and stage manage concerts and plays and produce some radio features for the ABC.

I went back to university to study the use of multimedia in education and training. Why? I was appalled at how much bad material was out there. The content was often good, the graphics looked 'cool' but there was little coherence from a usability perspective - users were overwhelmed with information and had recurring problems figuring out how to navigate what should have been a simple web site.

A lot has changed in the past ten years in terms of usability and it's great to see more educators and web developers embracing a user centric approach.

I've rolled together more than 25 years dealing with academics, teachers, learners, corporate clients and the general public. I hope it adds up to a solid perspective from which to shape the form, function, methodology and hands-on actions to deliver the best possible product for the end user."
