Jo visited the (NZ) Digital Solutions Expo back in September 2002, and liked what he saw - some time after he attended a Web Design Specialty group meeting, and was hooked. He became a WelMac member by the end of 2002 and was soon after was co-opted onto the WelMac committee.
Due to his keen interest it didn't take long for him to become facilitator of the Web Design and Publishing Group, which is now called NMG - or WelMac New Media Group for long (http://nmug.welmac.org.nz). Jo is also a WellyLuggite - having come to Macs via Linux.
In 2004 he once again accepted the role of Entrant Liason, Publicity Coordinator, and general "ask him" guy for MovieFest 2004. Jo spends up to 30 hours a week answering the 60 odd MovieFest emails a day, and sending out MovieFest DVDs and Entrant Packs to MovieFest participants.
Jo lives most of his online life under the alias 'Mangee'. Mangee re-designed and coded the new WelMac Web site in his spare time - which isn't much so thats why it's not finished. He also built and maintained the MovieFest 2003 Web site as part of the WelMac MovieFest subcommittee. Mangee has a site over at mangee.net.nz - as well as a few others he's far to busy to maintain.
When he's not attending WelMac meetings or hanging out on the WelMac forums (NZ Mac User Forums) - or coding some php on his Apple [sic] laptop (Help pay for a new 17" PowerBook), Jo works at Project Services, where he tests and diagnoses exotic air-conditioning systems, like operating theatres and legonella, SARS, Anthrax and other white powder infested areas, as well as other more boring stuff.
