Hi, I’m Matthew, and this is my Home Site.  It is in the process of undergoing some changes at the moment, so don’t be surprised by anything that is different from one vist to the next.

I have been working in the Information Technology (IT) Industry since late 1987, focusing primarily on Project and Programme Management.  I also specialise in Network Infrastructure and Engineering, SQL (Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Firebird and MariaDB) and have experience in Programming, Computer Forensics, IT Security, IT Audit and Governance, and Knowledge Management.  I’m based in and around Northern NSW, Australia, working along the east coast from Cairns through to Sydney and west as far as Orange and Roma.  I have performed services for a large number of State and Federal Government Departments and Agencies, as well as private and non-profit companies here in Australia and also in South-East Asia.

Academically, I have completed both my Master of Information Technology (M.Inf.Tech) and my Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), with specialties in both IT Management and IT Security.

All this is leading me towards my 5 year goal, which is to become a CIO/CTO for a large national or international company.

Apart from my professional life, I have many and diverse Hobbies, ranging from Miniature Wargaming, Board Games and Role Playing Games to Model Railroads.  I also have an interest in writing Poetry, Short Stories, and Novels.

So feel free to browse around, and keep on coming back, as I add more to this site regularly.

By the way, I can be contacted on Ph: (+61) 4 0411 0089 or via
