Biography

I love exploring societies through travel and being able to connect with people in the most unexpected of ways. I am passionate about making a significant and lasting impact through new, innovative and sustainable international development practices. Asia has so much to offer Australia, and I look forward to using the power of film to tell stories of experience and to highlight the importance of recognising our shared humanity. My favourite aspects of all things life are surrounding myself with incredible, supportive and fun individuals, enjoying delicious cocktails whilst listening to live music, and the wonderful feeling of being in the water.

Skills & Expertise

  • Indigenous justice
  • Australian politics & progressive thought
  • International projects and capacity building
