After freelancing for twenty years; shooting film stills and thoroughbred racehorses, documenting theatre, working in government imaging agencies, co-ordinating community art projects for publication, and maintaining my exhibition practice, I began teaching part time at S.I.T. in the Diploma of Photography. I have a passion for exploring lumiere, and a need to share that in my classes. I have also enjoyed participating in Curriculum Development through course writing for TAFENSW with colleagues. I continue my journey by exploring the art of on-line teaching/learning.
