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
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.

I am a highly accomplished and professional individual who has a strong vision to achieve successful outcomes and capitalise on opportunities for clients and colleagues. This vision includes collaborative strategy sessions, innovative ideas and extensive liaisons with the team and clients. I like to inspire and adapt to the diverse and challenging work load and with excellent organisational skills, a strong work ethic, I am determined to succeed and give the highest standard of client satisfaction and service.
My background has been entrepreneurial with a focus to create products to sell. I have developed a broad and innovative skill in communicating new and unknown products. I have a very diverse portfolio from starting a boutique plant nursery in which I created unique plant designs called topiary then created a theme around that one idea with hundreds of ideas and became very successful. I have bought and sold real estate, restored antique furniture, had market gardens, worked in high end retail and for Annset airlines.

To make a business successful it’s not just great ideas and enthusiasm which are important but also financial awareness with great business acumen and people skills. The reason our clients are always happy when they work with STS.
