Born in Texas and raised all over America, I discovered from the earliest age that intellectual and physical curiosity formed the foundations of all human exploration and discovery. By age 40, I had travelled to over 70 countries conducting field research in some of the most arduous conditions on earth.
I also made a name for myself in the world of Hong Kong action cinema, with supporting roles in innumerable Hong Kong movies including several of the biggest hits in Asian cinema history. Based in Hong Kong from the mid 1980s, I proved that I was more than willing to take a hit and perform a stunt during my varied HK film career, eventually serving as stunt coordinator and performing stunts in both the Hong Kong lensed "Cracker" with Robbie Coltrane and "Night Watch" where I also doubled Pierce Brosnan.
With a PhD in Psychology and a career in higher education, I believe that the key to developing human intelligence is connection to Others in meaningful, problem-solving activity. Providing the potential for human beings to develop patterns of geometric thinking is something I am very passionate about. This belief forms the foundations and educational values for codeXplore.

Born and raised in Sydney, I have been very lucky in many respects compared to my parents whose lives were disrupted by a war-torn country. My parents made me realise from a very young age how lucky I was to live in a country where education is encouraged instead of a privilege; is accessible no matter what gender or financial background; is the foundation to carving a future of success; and an enabler for societal and global change.
I am a self-confessed nerd, who enjoyed and excelled in Mathematics, English, Visual Arts, Photography, and the Sciences in school. I then continued my education and professional career in neuroscience research, before moving into the higher education technology start-up space. After a few years in higher education technology, I am now a leader in supporting higher education staff in the design and development of courses and programs delivered to university students.
I believe it is imperative to equip all our future leaders and creatives as early as possible with vital next generation skillsets of which includes digital literacy. It is from this belief that Mark and I conceptualised codeXplore. I hope that codeXplore will provide all students with new skills, experiences, friendships, and the ‘X’ factor to be inspired by their own abilities and creativity to ignite their lifelong learning in the digital era.”
