Hi, there!

My name is Phil and I’m an IT Pro working in education. Currently employed in a K-12 school, I am based in Queensland, Australia.

I have a passion to see technology help people in their day-to-day. In the education space, learning is the goal. Technology should be there to support the learning, not direct it. I am passionate about seeing students reach their goals and thoroughly enjoy being part of the process.

An analogy I enjoy sharing is that technology is just a tool that can be used for good or not so good. Just think: a hammer can be used to build a house or bludgeon someone to death!


Work at Darling Downs Christian School

Study, and serve on the Academic and Study Area of Information Technology Boards at the University of Southern Queensland

Am current President and co-founder for the USQ IT Students’ Network
