2012! Well for those who know me, 2011 was a big year, even though I don't have much to show for it here! Thanks to everyone who supported me in 2011.

2012 is looking a lot better for me now. Work at Curtin is excitng as usual and our eLearning team are really humming along! I already have two public speaking engagements with a few more coming in the pipeline.

On Saturday 25th February I am doing my favorite session "The philosophy of running" at the Steve Moneghetti Training Camp in Dwellingup. I am really looking forward to this session :-)
