Hugh Brown is a PhD candidate in the Creative Industries Faculty at QUT and teaches communication at the University of Queensland and QUT. He was editor of On Line Opinion from June 2000 until August 2004 and has a degree in journalism from the University of Queensland, for which he was awarded a University Medal. Before joining On Line Opinion he was editor of the now-defunct Tr@cks e-zine, based in Brisbane, and inaugural student editor of The Queensland Independent. He has also freelanced for a variety of publications.

Hugh has held many jobs, including bean picker, musician, footballer and public servant and still dreams of rock stardom. He maintains an interest in music through Bun' Ber E Celtic Bands and his PhD project, The Genre Benders, and in football through Puretouch. He hopes he has put a career picking beans behind him.
