About

This is me in glasses. I normally wear them just for driving.
Ella my eldest daughter and I on her Grade 6 graduation night.
Penelope (my youngest) and I out the front of our place in Mont Albert at Easter time.

Currently, I am a proud father of two lovely daughters living in Melbourne, Australia. Although, I grew up in country Victoria. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty even though I am a corporate. I have utmost respect for anyone and everyone that walks on this planet. I am massive Trivia, Jim Henson’s Muppets, Ice Hockey and LEGO fan.

In regards to work, I love the ability where I can plan, prioritise, design, develop and deliver blended learning solutions for a variety of markets. I love to consult and advise about the best use of digital learning and improve design standards in line with evolving ways of working. I also enjoy to keep up to date with, understand and regularly recommend emerging technologies and practice to improve individuals, teams and organisational capabilities.

With over 15 years digital learning experience and demonstrated experience in both instructional design and eLearning development, I have also a lot of experience conducting training needs analysis including how to leverage principles such as design thinking and root cause analysis to understand and address performance gaps. I also have led many facilitation workshops and even presented at iDesignX and Game Developers Conferences both here in Australia, Wales and in the United States.

I have loads of coding experience in Java, ASM, C++, HTML, JavaScript, SCORM and xAPI, as well as proven capability using Adobe Captivate, Trivantis Lectora and Articulate Storyline 360 Studio authoring programs. Of course, Adobe Creative Cloud is also part of my toolbox which I also use daily. Having been taught traditional and advanced 3D animation techniques, I love hand drawing and polymer clay sculpture, but can also use the Blender, 3D Studio Max, Maya and Softimage applications.

From being an independent consultant, I also possess the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, whilst being pro-active in delivering work independently with minimal supervision, but am a strong team player.

I’ve been told I am a resilient, relationship focused guy which can manage and navigate conflicting views and stakeholders/subject matter experts.
