I am a freelance information professional based in Brisbane, Australia.


My current consultancy projects include activities in the academic library, public library and the National/State library sectors. I have a strong interest in the intersection between libraries and learning, with work undertaken in the areas of staff development, workforce planning, libraries as learning organisations, ePortfolios and eTextbooks.
