About Ian

So what do you want to know?

I was born in 1960 in Queensland, Dalby as a matter of fact but grew up in Toowoomba so at time of writing that makes me 47. I left school at 16 and got an apprenticeship as a Pattern Maker which to date is one of the things that I’m immensely proud to have acquired.

During this time I took up skydiving as a hobby and eventually became an instructor by 19. I had two periods in skydiving 1978 to 1985 and 1993 to 1997 eventually instructing in most aspects of the sport development at the time including tandems.

In my early 20’s I worked in Sydney in a small documentary film post production studio. I learnt a little about film editing and sound recording and mixing. This was long before the development of computers so everything was film and tape.

In the mid 80’s I returned to Brisbane and eventually married and over ten years built a house that is one of my proudest achievements.

In ’91 my daughter was born who is now fast approaching adult life while in ’97 my wife and I separated.

My working life has been primarily within the skill of my trades although I’ve modified them considerably to include Carpentry, Cabinet Making, Industrial Prototyping & Model Making, Film Prop and Special Effects.

My major priority is now the development of Your Story as an online Chat Show using podcasting technologies. Go and check it out by clicking HERE.

That’s about it for the short version the rest will slowly evolve in this site.
