Above is a view of part of the Glass House Mountains district looking South-West from the Western summit of Mount Coochin, which is just a few minutes' walk from my home.

Computer Consultant and Technician based at Beerwah, Queensland, Australia (retired since May 2019).

From about mid-2016 after Microsoft released Windows 10 until May 2019 I was receiving fewer-and-fewer calls from customers for help with their computers. Also I had turned 68 years old in March 2019 and was finding it increasingly more difficult to attend customers.

So in early May 2019 I applied for, and was granted, the Aged Pension.

My BBus(InfSys) Degree from USC...

In June 2003 I completed my Bachelor of Business degree in Information Systems at the University of the Sunshine Coast ("USC Home" link at left).
In addition to my Information Systems major, I completed several elective courses in Marketing, Computer-Based Art & Design (CBAD), and some Arts courses in communication.

Before beginning my University degree I operated my own welding business for 23 years, building and repairing farm machinery. Before that I worked as a motor mechanic, a spare parts manager, and had a parcel delivery run for several years.
