Graham Jenkins has an ME and a BSc from the University of Adelaide. He taught mathematics at Canberra Institute, then worked at Telstra Research Labs in Melbourne for a number of years before moving to Mayne Nickless as a systems manager for an integrated transport booking and billing application.

He moved subsequently to Cincinnati Bell Information Systems as a support specialist on telecommunications management systems, and later to a similar role with IBM Global Services Australia.

In more recent times, Graham has worked as a Linux specialist on high-performance computing systems at Monash University and at the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing.

When he’s not at the keyboard, he can be found running with various groups around Melbourne in an ongoing battle to control his weight.
