It is probably safe to say that my love of Mathematics preceded my love of music by a year or two. I found both had many aspects in common, including patterns, power, and beauty. These two interests collided when studying for my degree in Pure Mathematics, when I funded my studies by playing gigs in a rock band. On attaining my degree, I commenced post graduate studies in Information Technology, while working as a systems designer and programmer. It was not long though before I returned to Mathematics and took up studies in Education.
For 35years now I have shared my passion for the wonderful, exciting world of Mathematics as a High school teacher, University lecturer, international conference presenter, course designer, textbook writer; all these roles have enriched my experience to allow the very best presentation as an online course creator. Now a days, my music enjoyment may be limited to listening, but my active daily involvement in teaching Mathematics continues to give great satisfaction and enjoyment.
