My Profile


I am the ICT Manager at Trident High School. I am new to Wikis and hope to learn about them so I can introduce the school's staff to them and perhaps integrate Wikis into the curriculum. I look forward to meeting some nice people in the process.

Cheers for now,

  • Employed as ICT Manager by Trident High School, Whakatane, New Zealand 2005 - present

I enjoy programming in C++, Java and Visual Basic.... but only as a hobby.

In my spare time I like to go surfing, play tennis or get frustrated on the golf course. I also enjoy Ceroc dancing. I am a good cook but hate cleaning up after.

    It's amazing.... only one week and I feel like I'm a pro at creating and editing Wikis. I know I have a long way to go, but I feel like I have gained a valuable and relevent skill. I look forward to learning more.

    End of week two and the progress continues.... who knows what I'll create in a month's time :)

I think I have inadvertently moved your space on the Wiki Discussions Feedback site. I'm sorry - I am still learning how to do things, but it's fun. Have been playing in your sandbox. A lovely idea!
