  I am currently a Lead AST2 teacher at Good Samaritan Catholic College on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland for 2024. My teaching career has been eclectic and diverse, and I have taught a range of subjects in various contexts. From Vocational Education to Senior Design and Business subjects, I have honed my skills as an educator in broad range of schools across Queensland, from Juvenile Justice to Elite Private sector and everything in between.  In addition to my teaching, I have also helped RoboCoast train hundreds of students and teachers across the Sunny Coast region. My students have been involved with Immersehigh since its inception, and I am now the President of the organization, working to keep this competition alive. Looking to the future, my goal is to see the creation of an integrated training facility that utilizes technological advancements such as AI, Virtual Reality and Quantum computing to deliver a learning system that creates efficient pathways for all students, differentiated to their individual talents and the needs of the communities they live in.
