Experience

Geek In Chief

Nov 2012

A chance encounter with an old friend reminded me how much I love electronics design & coaxing itty bitty microcontrollers to leap through hoops & interface with the 'real world'. So basically, I'M BACK, BABY! I now spend all my free time poking around in the electronics / microcontroller world, seeing what's changed, and that so much hasn't changed a bit, and using to push my boundaries & provide opportunities for new directions. Loving. It. To. Bits. ;)

Geek In Chief

Mar 2000

In 2000 I began self-employment in small-business IT consulting, meeting the needs of small business clients in Melbourne, and now in Sydney. I cover most of the needs a small business has of IT, from "help! the printer isn't working!", through day-to-day maintenance, to specifying, project managing & implementing/commissioning multi-server multi-site Windows-based IT infrastructure. This is my 'bread & butter'.

Freelance Electronics Design

Apr 1996 - Jul 2006 (10 years)

I completed many freelance electronics & microprocessor design projects for clients 'on the side' from my day-job: general electronics design, microcontroller-based systems, schematic & PCB design in Protel, overall product integration, and gained valuable experience in "Design for Manufacturing" of moderate-complexity SMT PCBs.

Electronics Technician thru to Design Engineer

Jul 1989 - Mar 1996 (6 years)

I began my adult working life at a small electronics design & small-scale manufacturing business, working my way up the 'skills food-chain', from manufacturing, test & repair, electronics design, microcontroller programming, & systems integration in medium-scale industrial control systems of a wide variety.

Education

Electrical / Computer Systems Engineering

1989 - 1992 (3 years)

Cert-4 in Renewable Energy Systems

2007 - 2009 (2 years)
