I have something of a roller-coaster ride for a life and always seem to be
over-committed, yet somehow getting by. Involved in many things, interests abound and I can only hope that an early retirement will let me get to spending more time on things I enjoy.
I an interested in computers, web publishing, weather and wildlife photography, writing, reading, travelling, music...
My career? Education and IT. I teach computer studies subjects at secondary schools mostly, though have been involved in primary schools and teacher training at QUT. For a great deal of the time I am out of the classroom on project work. At present I am an IT adviser for 43 schools in the Redcliffe/Pine Rivers/Caboolture areas.

I live in the Elimbah area, near Caboolture in the 'open spaces' near the Glasshouse Mountains.

My real interest in weather started in about 1994, in setting up and using Automatic Weather Stations in schools in the outback while I was involved in project work in the Mount Isa district. (Shame the tipping bucket rain gauges hardly saw a drop most of the year.) I have done some weather studies and am right up there with it now - hardly ever go out without my camera. 8-)
In 1996 I started a project "Project Atmosphere Australia Online" with a little help from Telstra and the Bureau of Meteorology (who still support me today). It is my 'work hobby' receiving a few accolades recently, but the workload seems to increase each year as more schools join in, the web site gets bigger and in need of those regular overhauls...
This is a weather project for schools, now involving classes from many countries - lots of fun activities and samples of student work, and some weather photo galleries.

Eyes to the skies, as always.
