Chief Maker – Proprietor

Nathan is an avid ‘maker’​ and ‘education hacker’​ (read: educator who doesn’t accept teaching and learning have to be the way they have always been). Nathan is trained both as a teacher and in IT and has previously worked for leading Australian Webhosting, ISP and software companies and as an ICT specialist in Brisbane’s leading independent schools. During this time he has engaged students in innovative and award winning activities involving robotics, quadcopters, electronics, 3D printing, Minecraft and bananas (sometimes at the same time!).
