What I have done in my life


This is it in a nutshell. The detail is too long-winded but contact me if you really want to know.


1960s – trained as a radiographer at RMIT in Melbourne and worked in public hospitals in the days of no seat belts and no drink-driving laws. Horrific accidents on Friday and Saturday nights…

1970s – got bored with the predictable routine of radiography so I trained as a computer programmer. This was in the days of sex discrimination, so it took me over two years to land a job. Eventually, CSIRO rescued me and with eternal gratitude, I learnt heaps.

Mid-1970s – moved to England. Worked in the back-end analysis of market research surveys in the much-maligned Milton Keynes. Became the figurehead for a national television advertising survey.

1980s – worked for Barclaycard, Barclays Bank’s credit card company and the sole Visa card issuer in the UK, installing their first credit-scoring system. Gained my Credit Card Certificate issued by the Chartered Institute of Bankers in London.

Late-1980s – moved to Scorelink, a credit-scoring provider near Windsor Castle, first in marketing and sales, finally becoming CEO. For my publications see Google Scholar.

1990 – collapsed under the corporate strain succumbing to chronic fatigue, a five-year sentence.

Mid-1990s – self-employed marketing communications. Co-authored my credit-scoring textbook which is still in use today.

Mid-2000s – returned to Australia and started writing seriously. Spent eight years ghostwriting. Discovered past-life regression which morphed into trance channelling and, together with writing and editing, these have become my late-life new career.

2008 – started on the books shown here which still continues today.

2016 – gained my Diploma of Professional Writing and Editing from Box Hill TAFE.
