Staff Bio

Shane is the Director of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit at The University of Queensland. He was fortunate enough to enjoy a long and successful 16 years as a professional rugby union player, before moving back to Australia to take up the opportunity to work as Head of Recruitment and the Business Development Manager for a Sports management company. In 2013, however, he pursued his passion of ensuring his mob is given every opportunity in the education sector, and took up a position at the University of Queensland under the leadership and guidance of Professor Cindy Shannon. Shane is currently studying a Masters of Business Administration and aims to have a positive influence on Indigenous Education on a national scale.
