About Me

I work where digital media and education intersect; currently as a casual academic in Media & Communications at Deakin University.

I built and run teachenglishonline.com.au; a site dedicated to supporting and providing educational content (blog and eBook) for TESOL teachers to work online. It has been viewed over 50k times (and ranks #1 on Google (Australasia).

Bachelor of Arts (Education/Digital Media), Deakin University; Postgraduate Certificate of Education, USQ, Australia.

Passion Projects
I write and perform as my comedy alter-ego Kae Zar, with my most recent digital media project premiering at the 2024 New Zealand Fringe Festival. I also write travel content at ohnomad.com, and occasionally stand up and read poems.

I built katezarb.com with GeneratePress* + Canva*
