The Long Weekend

It’s Monday and a public holiday. It’s the first day in a long time where I’ve felt like there wasn’t something urgent to do or something I’ve been neglecting that needs to be addressed. Work is bordering on the insane sometimes but I know it’s ok. I have a great team around me and we […]

This Liminal Space

We’re in the midst of the whole COVID-19 crisis at the moment and I just wanted to take a little pause to just blog some thoughts.

One Month On

It’s been just over a month since I packed up my car with the bear minimum of personal effects and set course for Adelaide. I ate up those 900km in a day and set up camp in an AirBnB in North Adelaide and raced around open houses and the various real estate agents cramming as […]

The Next Good Thing

In the last post I talked about how I was on the journey between the Rut, the Transition and the Good Thing. I didn’t actually talk about the good thing, and I guess it’s because I’m in the middle of a process that will take a good few months to finalise. So I don’t know […]

Things Change

Today I resigned my job and employer of more than 12 years. It’s the place where I started my career in education and the path that led me towards Ed-Tech and online learning. I’m grateful for the opportunities provided to me and I’m proud of the work that I contributed to. The last 12 months […]
