“My background is as a trained musician, primary teacher, designer and programmer of educational software, web
designer and technical writer.
I have collaborated for many years with friends at the highly respected Swedish educational software companies
LäraMera, Leripa and Kognitiva Kompaniet, resulting in English versions of their innovative software being sold all
over the world.
Before leaving a management position in 2002 to raise our family, I enjoyed a busy and fulfilling career at Inclusive
Technology, undoubtedly a leading supplier of switch accessible software and assistive technology. I particularly
enjoyed my time there as a designer and programmer. I am delighted that some of my creations were in demand for
more than ten years, and some on which I collaborated are still going strong.
I continue to design and programme new games and activities for Shiny Learning’s flourishing Subscription area, an
online service which is being used in schools and homes around the world.”
