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 … Continue reading One Month On
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 … Continue reading The Next Good Thing
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 … Continue reading Things Change
So I’m off to India. I meant to post this yesterday when the media embargo was lifted but I went through a mad rush to pack and prepare. Last year there was a call to join a Young Entrepreneur Boot Camp supported by the New South Wales Government. I applied and was lucky to get … Continue reading Into India
A couple of years ago I got into startups. Not as a participant but as an observer. It was interesting to look at the systems at play in that space, to learn the dynamics and the culture and to try and interrogate how and why certain ideas seemed to dominate that world. It was definitely … Continue reading Not a Startup Guy, In a Startup World
I have just a couple of weeks of long service leave to go. It’s been so good to have a break from work, without the threat of worrying where the next pay check is coming from. I’ve been working since I was 16 and during that time there have been a few stints of unemployment, … Continue reading Where am I going? What am I doing?
This blog has been neglected a bit this year. The silence has felt deafening on this end - there’s been plenty to write about, lots has been going on in life, but finding words and being able to talk things openly have challenged my expression. This site has been a place where I have shared … Continue reading No Work …. till Next Year
Wow, this year is rocketing by. I was thinking today it must have been a while since my last blog post. I just checked and it was 31/12/2017. So lets catchup on where I'm up to. I spent the last six months elbows deep in Blackboard developing up a new theme for CSU's deployment. A … Continue reading Catching Up on the Year
Yesterdays blog post was a bit of a downer. Yes, this year has been tough, but there have also been some awesome highlights and encounters with people across the globe. In March I got to travel to the US again, something that is quite rare and unexpected as I was only there in November 2015 … Continue reading Thanks!
I've tried a couple of times to write this post and failed. There's a bunch of rejected drafts and I don't know if this really encapsulates everything, but it gets closest. I'm still processing everything that has happened and am trying to work out what exactly it is I want to say, but I guess … Continue reading Years End
