UNI101.com.au was founded in late 2014 by Gary Newman, a journalist and author who has been writing about education since 2006. His work has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and The Australian.

Gary has worked as a sessional journalism teacher at University of Melbourne. He has also worked in policy and regulation for the Victorian government and has for the past five years moonlighted as a consultant and documentary-maker.

Gary holds degrees in law and arts (politics) from Deakin University. Of a summer’s weekend he may be found imitating a cricketer on the mottled grass of Melbourne’s suburban sporting ovals.
