Current employment
I edit an art and technology online news service - fineArt forum. fineArt forum is a pioneer not-for-profit online news service dedicated to the provision of news and information for the global arts and technology community. I am also a casual academic and researcher within QUT's School of Media and Journalism where I lecture in online journalism.

As editor of fineArt forum, I manage a team of 20. Besides overseeing production and content, I am focussed on steering its creative identity and forming alliances with arts and Internet organizations within the Asia Pacific region. As a QUT academic, the statisfaction lies in being able to pass on knowledge to students and I strongly believe its a two-way process - you learn as much as you give to students."If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space. My career ambition is to stay on the forefront of new media, using new communications and information technologies for global reporting.

QUT rewards
QUT has provided me with an all-round education. Learning basic industry skills, practices and theoretical perspectives are one thing. But what was more valuable was the ability to trial and test out new ideas, and watch them progress or fail, and learn from these mistake. I picked up very useful thinking strategies, especially with research work, that can be applied to any job.
