Hiya, my name is Trent Geddes and I started this website to share my passion for a technology in more places than just the weekly tech feature segments than I complete on radio across Australia weekly.
Having a job in the broadcasting industry and being able to combine it with my love for all things tech is a blessing, because at one point in my life I did not know which one I really wanted the most.
I was one of those kids who grew up with an ear for listening to the radio regularly, not only to enjoy the music being played but to take in the talent the ‘Pilots of the airwaves’ had…plus dream of when I would be able to find opportunities that would let me have a go at it.
I never grew up with a computer like some of my friends, my first experiences with a computer and the one that planted the seeds for my future is when the primary school I attended started installing Osborne Pentium computers into classrooms in 1995. We were given 30 minutes a week at minimum to have a play on the computer to do anything we liked, including being able to use a dialup connection to view the Internet.
Towards the end of my time in primary school in 1997 we got our first home computer.
From then onward I spent time learning all about the computer’s software and hardware, which started changing my idea for a future job to the world of IT.
After spending a few years in high school, I decided that halfway through Year 11 was the time to leave and join the world as things were a little too challenging to succeed in school.
Following a few years of study in the Information Technology field, I went searching for a career in the game with no eventual success…so I started my own business instead fixing & selling computers and providing website hosting.
By 2007 I had become worn down by working 6 days a week fixing other peoples technical issues and was looking for other options which led to the discovery of a Broadcasting Diploma being offered at a local TAFE…I was ready to make something out of a radio career.
I was able to complete my Broadcasting course and was even awarded the Star Student of 2007, then within months was employed at our local FM’s (StarFM/The River).
My employment in the Commercial Radio game has lasted for well over 6 years now, with a wide skill set that most in the game could only hope for.
The idea for talking tech on air came from a colleague, who wanted to be able to add a new feature to his breakfast show…I loved tech so I thought hey why not, beginning what has become another component of my working week and the website you are viewing.
When not working I love to spend my spare time enjoying great music, playing with new gadgets, catching up with friends, enhancing my skills, fixing things and even going on day trips around the region to enjoy the beauty of where I live.
