Who am I?
I began my career in 1994 with IBM Perth as a Support Specialist for OS/2. I was promoted to Sydney in 1995 where I became Country Specialist for the Product. I subsequently took on a role with ISSC (IBM’s Internal Support Company) as a Team Leader providing support to IBM’s own internal staff.
I returned to Perth in 1996 to take on a role at Woolworths HQ in Kewdale as Support Team Leader.
In 1998 I was recruited by General Electric Capital IT Solutions to help manage the OS/2 Server Infrastructure at the Water Corporation.
In 1999 I joined Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) supporting the WA Ministry of Justice.
By 2001 I had won a role as an IT Manager at Woodside Petroleum.
2003 saw me join Sealcorp (now Asgard Wealth Management) as their Internal Support Manager.
In 2004, I decided to take my skills into my own enterprise: PCGURU.
Since then PCGURU has almost doubled in size every year.
In 2007, I began a Tech Talkback segment on 882 6PR which evolved into a role with 6PR as a Talkback Presenter. Until April 2010, I had a regular role as Weekend Breakfast Presenter. I also performed Tech Talkback on Melbourne’s 3AW.
In addition to being Managing Director of PCGURU, I am also a Technology Commentator for the ABC & Mix 94.5 as well as Channel Seven’s Sunrise & The Morning Show.
In 2010, I started hosting “Undercurrent” on West TV. This is Perth’s only totally local Current Affairs Program and I have since launched my own TV Show called #thebuzz.
In 2004, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
I have many symptoms but they’re all being treated with various expensive pharmaceuticals.
I have written about my experiences here:
