I am an engineer, educator, researcher and recently a start-up entrepreneur.

I direct Close Comfort, inventing the Coolzy: a new energy saving, low emissions air conditioning technology for a global market.

My research on engineering practice helped define the Engineers Australia professional competencies for chartered engineers. My books “The Making of an Expert Engineer” and “Learning Engineering Practice” are influencing the future of engineering education in universities and workplaces.

I am probably best known internationally for research on sheep shearing robots from 1975 till 1993 and for the first industrial robot that could be remotely operated via the internet in 1994, one of the earliest demonstrations of the ‘internet of things’.

In my spare time I photograph West Australian wildflowers (and sometimes other flowers too, in different places). I mainly collect photographs at our farm.nature reserve Jasmine Hills, near Crossman in Western Australia, about 115 km south east of Perth.

I exhibit some of my best photos at Alamy.com.
