I began programming around 1993, and started a Computer Systems Engineering degree at the University of South Australia in 1996. After changing to a Computer Science degree I finished my Bachelor at the end of 2001.
During my University course I worked part time at the University of South Australia as a Unix systems administrator, and also did some contract systems administration for various companies.
Around 1998 I took up a contract as part of a team doing programming for a wool bale processing machine in C++. I eventually began working for one of the other people involved in the project, as they owned a company named Tellurian.
Tellurian work on cool software for a variety of platforms, including Unix, MacOS and Windows. I worked at Tellurian as a programmer until near the end of 2001, when I started work at Adelaide University.
I currently work at Adelaide University as a Unix Systems Administrator, managing large and small systems running Solaris, Linux, and various other flavours of Unix.
