Where are you from?
I’m from various places in Australia. Born in Sydney. Lived most of my life in Brisbane, lived in Townsville and a little bit overseas.
What’s your background?
I started as a teacher. Yeah. I kept studying. And made my way to university QUT and I taught teachers. So I taught teachers how to teach. And it was mostly classroom, management, behaviour development, discipline and I spent 32 years at QUT. I live at UQ because my wife has a job here.
What’s important to you and your life?
We have had a few close shaves recently, medically, and it has focused my mind. And… what’s important… I find it hard to talk about it actually. So yeah, I had a stroke. It lowers your threshold of emotionality. So what’s important, just relationships, friends.
