I wasn't always a Professor!

I was born and grew up in a town in South West Victoria not far from the Great Ocean Road. To be honest I was not academic and I hated school. I spent more time skipping school than I did sitting in class rooms. It was the 70s/80s and life was pretty chaotic.

After leaving school I worked in a range of jobs from labourer, to car park attendant and night shift at a service station. Then I decided at 25 years of age to go back and get my HSC. I did well and got a place at University.

What I want!

To inspire everyone to be curious about the world around them. To enjoy science as much as I do. Or at least understand that science is important. This website is in response to the numerous questions I receive from parents and teachers who are interested in the latest research on learning, teaching and the brain. I hope to regularly update you with current issues from a scientific perspective.
