Started at DDQ in 1978, and notched up 25 years of exciting career opportunities and experiences spanning both the DDQ and WIN eras. Employed by the Chief Engineer Paul Ament. Spent first three months as a trainee technician but was seconded to ‘On Air’ duties by the Production Manager Paul Erbacher. I then spent the next 4 years working as a coordinator, tape operator, duty technician, audio operator, cameraman, tape editor, and occasional director....(a rather long secondment). During this time I studied for my AOCP and TVOCP in preparation to rejoin the engineering department. This I did in 1982, under the then Chief Engineer Stuart Cornford. I believe my time in operations made me a better technician and I don’t regret a single day of my time in Operations and Production.. I started again as Trainee Technician and worked my way up through the positions of Senior Technician, OB Supervisor, Studio Engineer and eventually in 1992 to Station Engineer appointed by the WIN Television Network’s Group Chief Engineer Peter Gough. Back in 1987 I married the station’s Traffic Manager Jenny Hill, and we are still happily married today. I resigned from WIN Television in September 2003 during the sad era of digitisation, centralisation, and deterioration of regional television stations as they once were. My current position is Manager of Audio Visual Services within the Division of ICT at the University of Southern Queensland, ironically looking after multiple high definition television studios, radio and production facilities, digital edit suites and a vast array of audio visual equipment...and I still love this stuff!
