I am an Educational designer / Learning designer currently living in Melbourne, Australia. I have a background in teaching, curriculum design, and film, television and multimedia production. I am interested in blended and online learning, staff development, ePortfolios and informal and lifelong learning.

I hold research interests in e-Learning adoption and integration and in academic and teaching staff professional development. I recently completed my Masters of Education by Research thesis exploring vocational educators’ perceptions of the enablers and barriers shaping their use of e-Learning.

I'm also active in a number of technology enhanced learning communities, including ASCILITE TEL edvisors SIG (founding member), ePortfolios Australia (organising committee member) and regularly contribute blog posts to The Edvisor TEL edvisors blog.
