Biography

I’m a CIMA qualified accountant. My first spreadsheet foray was with Lotus 1-2-3 back in 1995 in London where I spent 8 years working in investment banking as Global IT Financial Controller. It wasn’t long before we moved to Excel and that was all I did, day in day out. 

In 2003 I moved back to Australia’s Sunshine Coast and with no investment banks in sight I worked for various small businesses for a few years. The lack of MS Office skills used to amaze me. I would spend a big chunk of my day showing people how to do stuff in Excel, Word, Outlook etc. That’s when I had the idea for our website. I wanted to provide a way for small business employees to learn how to use the tools they have at their fingertips without having to attend an expensive offsite training course.

Plus since my passion is for Excel I also write a weekly Excel blog and answer Excel help questions people leave in our blog comments or in our Help Desk system.  I also teach an online Excel Dashboard course.

Receiving the Excel MVP award is a tremendous honour. I’m grateful to be able to help people every day doing what I love. Currently (July 2018) we have in excess of 100,000 members from a vast array (no pun intended ;-) ) of industries around the world who receive our weekly Excel newsletter and/or our free training.
