About me

My day job is running the Grattan Institute‘s higher education program. I started in August 2011. Before then I had two employers and three jobs. I was a research fellow at the Centre for Independent Studies, and editor of their quarterly magazine, Policy . Much of what I wrote for the CIS is here. I was also a higher education policy adviser for Glyn Davis, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Melbourne.

This is my third blog, starting with Catallaxy in 2003, moving to a solo blog in 2006, and from August 2011 here at my second solo blog. At all times my blogging has been recreation with work synergies; none of my views should be attributed to employers or colleagues, past or present (despite my best efforts to persuade them on some points).

  1. Do you realize that Wikipedia has your date of birth listed as 7 July 1965?

  2. I do now. I’m sure that would be a good day for a birthday.
