CAREER EXPERIENCE

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Electronic Security Technician – 14Yrs

Having experimented with a few trades after finishing year 12 at Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, I found interest in electronics and IT where I progressed in the Security industry as a Service Technician and Senior Technician in commissioning installations. My interest in system processes and IT continues and I wish to bring these skills to my teaching.

Various work experience – From 2002-2016

Throughout my trade career I have endeavoured to explore new interests and found by training and working in the fields was the best way to experience their elements. I have training and professional experience in Industrial Abseiling, Stage Rigging and Climbing, Snowmaking and Ski-lift maintenance, Bicycle mechanics and Bicycle Courier, Army Commando Recruit and After School Care. I have found the most positive attributes from each of these fields and applied them to my profile as a person and teacher.
