I am a 38 year old father of 1 and step-father of 2. I moved to Tasmania in 2009 as a result of meeting my wife online. Unfortunately I suffered serious 3rd and 4th degree burns as a result of an accident at home on 6 November 2009, which led me to return to University. I have done substantially better at study than I had anticipated, earning a DN-HD Average on the Graduate Certificate in Business, as a result of which I have entered into a Masters of Business, with a 2-unit Research Project.

I have personally been involved in several incidents that have altered my idea of how information flows in life-threatening situations. The flow of information, how it is encoded/decoded, the channels used and the importance placed on information from some channels, particularly when the information would contradict existing constructs of reality, that is something useful.
