I like makerspaces, libraries, and the digital humanities.

I work at Curtin University Library in Perth, Western Australia, as a Learning Coordinator.


My posts aim to be of interest to librarians, educators and researchers working in the tertiary education sector.

I haven’t written anything for a while, but hoping to get back to blogging regularly some day soon.

Cherry Gertzel Legacy site

My late friend Prof. Cherry Gertzel (1928 – 2015) was an internationally recognised Australian scholar of the history and politics of East Africa. I am a trustee and administrator of the Cherry Gertzel Bursary Fund and am currently creating an inventory of Prof. Gertzel’s extensive collection of books, reports, research and archival material.
