About Ausdroid's Staff
Find out a bit more about who’s who at Ausdroid, including our editors, contributors, podcasters, and more!
Chris RowlandChief Executive
Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag.
Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
Daniel TysonEditor in Chief
Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.
Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
Scott PlowmanDeputy Editor in Chief
Scott is our modding guru - he has his finger on the pulse of all things ‘moddable’, pointing us towards all the cutting edge mods hacks that are available. When he’s not gymming it up, or scanning the heck out of Nexus devices, you'll find him on the Ausdroid Podcast.
Outside of Ausdroid, Scott's a health care professional and lecturer at a well known Victorian university.
Jason MurrayAssistant Editor
Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!
Adam PlowmanJunior Reviewer
This is Scott's son, Adam. You may have seen him in some of Scott's reviews in recent times. He is 9 years old and in grade 3 and loves his tech. He, like so many kids, watches far too many YouTube videos and plays far too much Roblox on his dad's old gaming laptop. He, like his Dad, is very interested in tech and cool things.
Alex ChorosManaging Editor, WhistleOut
Alex is Managing Editor at WhistleOut, a mobile, internet, broadband, and everything comparison site which allows readers to compare mobile plans, broadband offerings and more to work out the best deal on offer.
He also happens to be a top bloke, and we love working with him.
By day, Alex works within the Industrial Relations field/occupation but by night and in his spare down time he searches the net for anything and everything relating to Android and Chrome related products and news.
Other various interests Alex has include, Accessible transport for people with disabilities along with LGBTIQ and Health related fields and interests for again for people with disabilities.
Duncan has been interested in technology since coding "Mary had a little Lamb" in Basic on his ZX Spectrum. A fan of all things Android, most days you'll find Duncan trawling the web for Android news or quietly editing away on Map Maker.
Georgia PlowmanJunior Reviewer
A pre-teen who was introduced to tech at a very early age by a father obsessed with Android and tech in general. Having used many hand-me-down tech products in the past she is now coming into her own and is progressing well helping family members trouble shoot tech problems.
Neerav has been interested in Android phones since he bought the 1st one ever released (HTC Dream/G1). He has never bought an Apple product :-) His dream phone would have stock Android OS, fast high-res camera and swappable 4000mAh battery.
A high performer in multiple fields, Neerav has worked as an IT Support Analyst, Mainstream media writer/Photojournalist and University Research Librarian.
Phil is an Android enthusiast who spends most of his time reading up on U.S. Android news so he can get the low down on what could possibly hit Australian shores. Coming from a background in IT & T sales, he’s in the perfect position to give an educated view on hardware and software.
