I am Anthony Carrick - I am interested in technology, writing, and photography.
I have a Bachelor of Multimedia Design from the University of Queensland and recently completed a Graduate Diploma in Information Technology, also from the University of Queensland, to further my IT knowledge and career.
I've set up this page to act as a "portal" to my various activities around the web and to showcase my skills and interests. I used some of favourite photos I've taken as backgrounds to each section. You can see a story of each photo at the "About The Photos" link in the bottom right corner.
I have recently completed further qualifications in Information Technology from the University of Queensland. There, I learnt software and web development in Python, Java, PHP and C#, as well as database theory, use and development in MySQL and Oracle. I also studied computer networking, information security, and algorthims and data structures.
Of course, I've always been interested in IT anyway, and technology generally, hence this website and my technoloy blog, A Tech Witness.
Here I discuss and show my university projects and I will document the progress of any new and ongoing projects.
My original undergraduate degree was a Bachelor of Multimedia Desgin also from the University of Queensland. I made a portfolio to showcase my graphic design and multimedia projects. I have kept it updated over the years with a few recent additions. Now, I'm mostly keeping it as an archive for interest.
I am interested in writing and language. To that end I have a couple of blogs - a kimchi and Korean food blog, and a technology blog. I also contribute to other places on the web.
Adventures in Kimchi — my Korean food blog.
A Tech Witness — my personal technology blog.
I also write articles for the Australian run leisure magazine Weekend Notes.
I write about food and entertainment venues, leisure activity ideas, and locations.
I am an amateur photographer, interested in landscape, urban, and panorama photography.
My best photos are on Flickr.
I also try to geotag my photos where possible so the map view will display many of them.
I have a weekly photo blog written in Hugo and Markdown over at A Photo Story.
My aim is to document my photography while gaining writing practice, experience in Markdown and static website generators.
I try to post my more professional type photos on @anthonycarrick.
I will also post on this Instagram account when I have a new Weekend Notes article available.
You can purchase some of my photos in various products over at my store on Redbubble.
I like to choose the appropriate product for the photos, so some are available in more formats and products than others.
If you'd like to contact me about my technology projects, photography, writing, or other purpose you can email me at
I would be interested in collaborating on technology projects, and am interested in further career opportunities in IT support, programming, and software testing.
