Hello! I’m Helen

A Website Developer, Website Operations Manager & Web Technologies Lecturer.

I am endeavoring to educate the world one person at a time.


I have had several careers, lots of differing interests and experiences, and the knowledge gained from these I would like to share.

When I was in the RAAF, I was teaching my subordinates, peers and superiors (in rank) how to do things using technology provided to us. Whether that was how to load a telex machine or how to get the most out of the ‘dreaded’ ration pack. I resigned from the RAAF in 2000, and I found that I enjoyed the problem solving and teaching aspects of my job in the RAAF.

I then taught for 14 years at a Vocational Education College. My specialist subject was and is Web Technologies. Specifically Web Design and Development. I left the college in 2015. I am teaching my web technologies craft through Codemaster Institute Bootcamps

My mission since then has been one of self-discovery and realising that I am good at teaching and mentoring people about web technologies.

I started my business – Graphitedge – just to do that in July 2015

This is my place on the web to express my road that I have traveled through life. The road is less traveled as I have not really considered myself to conform to the ‘norm’ for a woman of my vintage.
