Patrick Howe: Director

Head Of Engineering

I am a highly technically minded individual holding a Bachelor of Engineering Degree in Electronic Engineering, a Graduate Diploma of Education in Mathematics and Science, a Certificate IV in Small Business Management, a Military and Civil flying License, an Advanced Scuba Diving License and numerous other short course certificates. I have special interest in Science, Physics, Programming and I am an expert in Advanced Mathematics.

I have lectured in mathematics, microprocessors, and engineering during the last 10 years for the ANU (Australian National University) undergraduate program (Associate Degree in Electronic and Mechanical Engineering) and performed special guest lectures in electronics for ADFA (Australian Defense Force Academy).

I have vast expertise in areas of mathematics and engineering. I have held appointments as a research and development Electronic Design Engineer, Computer Programmer (C++), Military Pilot, Technical Project Manager and IT Security Designer Consultant Engineer. I have always excelled in high profile positions and have easily dealt with any stress associated with them.

I am very creative and adaptable, enjoying challenge and variety - and in fact, thriving on it. I enjoy focusing on deep and very complex problems. I understand the complexities of Quantum Mechanics and I have interest in some special cases in the Quantum world. I clearly use and deeply can visualise Maxwell's Equations and of course Einsteinium Physics. I equally enjoy travelling, interacting and working within, or managing teams.

I am a proven leader, accept challenge and ensure success. I am committed to the highest levels of professional and personal excellence.

Craig "Macca' McGown
SavvyLevel Ambassador

Craig "Macca" McGown was born in Maryborough Queensland. He was raised in a working class home in a family with a love for camping. During his time growing up the family progressed through the standard camping career of equipment from swags, through the tent style range to caravans and his fondest childhood memories reside in the times away in these.

Macca's post school life has again circled around outdoor and outback living seeing him as a member of the Australian Army Shooting Team and a carpenter specialising in outback and remote area construction for most of his career. He travelled all over the north of Australia doing station and remote community work and constructing facilities in national parks.

Macca's love of the outdoor lifestyle saw him move into manufacturing and prior to his television and outdoor living ambassador career was the largest manufacturer of soft floor camper trailers in Australia. His passion for inspiring others to embrace the exploration and freedom Australia has to offer is worn on his sleeve and he is always keen to pass his knowledge and experience onto anyone wanting to learn.

Macca is the quintessential Aussie bushman and larrikin with the ability to traverse Australia's harshest environments in a methodical, no nonsense manner and an "I'll get you there, and home again" attitude.

Sarah Farrugia

Head of Educational Products

 I am driven toward a world where people ‘be the changes they want to see’ and businesses strive to enhance individuals and communities.


With a passion for travel, creative expression and the written word, my Bachelor of Business took me on a journey of extensive administrative experience in the corporate sector. For over twenty years I was involved in ‘getting things done’ at director and CEO level.  My desire to explore and hone my writing skills saw me move to the retail sector where I enjoy developing prominent levels of customer service, team enhancement and management.  For over ten years I have educated and delighted customers at one of the world’s most ethical body care companies.


What have I done?  Run my own school of classical ballet, self-published a collaborative collection of poems, taught ceramics, written for several publications and performed poetry. I write, edit, explore, and start over again.


Motivating people to be the best version of themselves is a passion and I am excited to bring this sensitivity to schools all over the country.  Through the SAVVY TEXT GUIDES APP, teachers, parents and students learn, understand and practice their way to A+. Pupils will feel positive and ready to blitz their English exams.


Imagine a society where happy, successful, motivated children are the norm. What a world it could be!
