About Flashram_Peter_AUS

Internet & Web Design Forum moderator, Peter@Flashram My name is Peter Schuck and I am trained as a nurse. I have had many jobs over the years, the first as an apprentice motor mechanic, when I was 15. I couldn't see myself with grease all over me every day and decided the armed services might be a good idea. As an army cadet, I enjoyed the time I spent on manoeuvres and picked the Air Force as it seemed the nicer of the three services, what with planes and all.

I discharged from the Air Force just after the collapse of the Vietnam War. I often wonder how my life would be different if I'd stayed in the armed service. Would I have met my wife and would we have our wonderful children?

After the armed forces I worked for the Government in the Department of Immigration - a dead head job - finding files, shuffling paper, but never actually doing anything to help anyone. Next, I went to nursing school. That is where I met my wife. After nursing school I worked at different hospitals, saved lives, and injured my back for the first time. My back injury changed me emotionally as well as professionally. I couldn't work as a nurse and eventually got a job working for the Australian Taxation Office where I worked for 11 1/2 years. But I wanted to get back to nursing and after 15 years was able to return. I was enjoying it, feeling at home in operating theatres, but unfortunately injured my back again. I've been completely unable to work as a nurse, since.

So what did I do? I got interested in photography and discovered the people at PhotographyREVIEW.com.

I started a computer business in 1993, which I run from home. I have a good knowledge of computers and feel comfortable offering advice to people on a range of computer-related issues. My computer and Internet knowledge is self-taught and Web design is one of my passions. I find a desire to help others is one of my main motivations to learn more. I hope I can bring that to the Internet and Web Design forum as well as the other forums that I participate in on this site.

I don't profess to be an expert, more a Jack of all Trades and Master of None. But I think I have a lot to offer to this community. I care about people and my advice comes from the heart.

I hope we all get something out of the Internet and Web Design forum and grow together.

Peter
