I first entered the electronic and communications field after training with the Overseas Telecommunications Commission (OTC Aust), to become a Technical Officer in overseas satellite, submarine cable and the radio communications fields. With 18 months experience on the OTC Coastal Radio Station (Darwin), I applied and was accepted by The Australian Antarctic Division to serve at Macquarie Island (15 months) in 1978, and then again at Casey Station (12 months) in 1981.
I have since held Technician, Technical Officer, Team Leader and Trouble shooter positions in various communications companies and the Sydney Opera House (electronics section). I also formed a successful employment agency in Sydney in the late 1980’s which is still operating today. I have retired in 2021, and decided to extend my challenges to writing a non-fiction books based on my experiences with ANARE.
My first book is called “My Adventurous Times in Antarctica” published May ‘2022, and I am presently writing my second book also on Antarctic experiences.
