Background information and interests

I am a teacher of English at a public high school in Perth's south-eastern suburbs (Western Australia). I hold a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education from Murdoch University. It was while studying at Murdoch that I was introduced to, and fell in love with, Cultural Studies. I pursued this and incorporated my interests into a Media minor. The academic work of which I am most proud is a research paper on George Harrison and a research project on Cyber Bullying.

While it's true that I am endeavouring to make a difference in this world, it must also be said that my schemes and dreams on how best to achieve this are constantly changing. For now I am concerning myself with the education and well-being of teenagers. I believe in the promise of a brighter future and feel quite strongly that believing in young people can create a shift towards positivity and possibility.

Music forms the core of my life; my tastes are diverse and my enthusiasm for sound never wanes…nor do the dance moves. Over the years I have learnt piano, basic guitar, performed with a community percussion group and am now faced with conquering a Roland JX305 groovesynth. My partner Drew is a multi-talented DJ and musician who happily provides the tunes for me to funk up the dance floor. Together we formed "Phantasm Productions" and began asking similar souls to join us at all kinds of gigs. This was my first real awareness of, and direct role in, fans creating communities. Peace.Love.Unity.Respect.
