Doug Kirkpatrick is an award-winning producer/director, web entrepreneur and vocational educator living in Melbourne.

His professional background covers broadcasting, corporate film-making, multimedia production and special events. He is also quite keen on trains having qualified in mainline railroad service for the US Government.

Doug grew up in Melbourne, studied media production in Oregon, founded a production company in New York, and then returned to Australia in 2002 after 18 years in the US.

Feeling somewhat disconnected from the Australian experience, he thought it a good idea to find out what it's like to be Australian through other people's eyes. And so he started Being Australian as its founding member.

Dylan Trevena is the owner of Friendly Accessible Technology (FAT), an Internet consultancy based in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney.

Dylan studied arts at Sydney University before deciding to teach adults how to use computers. He provides a host of database and website services as well as very friendly one-on-one and group training for adults on many aspects of website creation and management.

When Dylan - a father of five including triplets - is not changing nappies or cleaning up other people's HTML, he likes to dabble in poetry, challenge others to chess, play the piano and take long walks in the bush.
