Aussie Inventions That Changed The World (and other stuff)

I co-presented The History Channel’s Aussie Inventions That Changed The World, an eight part documentary series on thirty-two groundbreaking Australian inventions (yes, that’s me in the Akubra to the left).  You can see me pushing a Victa lawnmower, eating dead sheep from a tin, wearing a replica Ned Kelly helmet (when I’m not wearing said Akubra), having hot latex applied to my lower arm, and illustrating the flushing principles of the dual-flush toilet using cocktail and schooner glasses in a bar. Nice work if you can get it.

Defining Moments In Australian History Video Series


I teamed up with the National Museum of Australia and Sketch Group to write and narrate (mostly) this live-sketch animated video series.  The videos are a classroom resource, with curriculum links to year 5 and 9 history.
