I have taught English for 40yrs in Australia, NZ, PNG, Kiribati, and Fiji.
I have been Convenor of the Dip Gen Studs program since it was first accredited in 1995. From second semester 1991 to 1994, I looked after the Foundation Studies program.
I was Director of Studies for Avondale's ELICOS program when it operated (1991-1992, 2003-2004).
On Sabbaths, I enjoy preaching in Adventist churches around NSW.
I was also a great believer in basketball, which I used to play passionately, and tennis, but retired from both some years ago.
My passion these days is visiting the churches. Most Sabbaths I am preaching at a church somewhere in NNSW, Greater Sydney or SNSW.
