After BSc (Hons) and Dip. Ed. From Melbourne University, John Anderson taught for 20 years in various Victorian secondary schools. During this period he was assigned to the Ministry for the Environment (Victoria) producing media and teaching resources centred around land capability, dryland salinity and coastal land use. With the onset of the computer age John gained a Grad. Dip. Computing from Deakin University and concentrated on teaching in the IT area. When teaching became less fun, John moved north and joined what became Information Technology and Resources at JCU. After several years in support and application development John was appointed JCU Web Manager in 2000. Living on Magnetic Island and cycling to work from the ferry, he lists sea-kayaking, scuba diving and photography among his hobbies.
Now retired but still living on Magnetic Island and indulging his passions!
