Grahame has worked in the Information Technology industry for over 25 years. From humble beginnings making electronic kits with his dad, he landed the ultimate geek job: a sales clerk at Dick Smith Electronics.
He went on to study Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Wollongong. After graduating he joined Computer Science Corporation. A programmer in C, Delphi, Java (and anything he could get his hands on) lead Grahame to develop telephone and internet banking systems. These systems still exist today in the credit unions and banks throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Grahame worked as a developer and project manager for companies that made bespoke systems for the, highly regulated, pharmaceutical industry. During this time he won an international scholarship and presented to conferences throughout Australia and New Zealand. He has published articles on his work in Electronic Clinical Trials.
In 2009, he turned his sights to training full time. Grahame now provides adult and school-age vocational training at TAFE, a university and for private organisations. He works as an Information Technology consultant and training specialist. Currently, mobile apps (Android and iPhone) are a popular teaching area for Grahame. He also provides online training and writes distance learning material.
When not behind a computer, he loves to play music (and leads a ten–piece ska band), skiing and bushwalking in the beautiful Blue Mountains, where he lives with his wife and two young sons.
