Biography

My name is Karl and I am an Aboriginal man from Dubbo NSW.  I  work as an Aboriginal child protection caseworker, and have held this role for four years. I completed undergraduate studies in community and social development and I’m now studying a Masters of social work. I am extremely passionate about Aboriginal culture and how it can play a part in making a fairer and more sustainable world. My career aspiration is to incorporate Aboriginal knowledge and culture in mainstream Australian society. Outside of work my hobbies include vintage motorcycles, fishing, skateboarding and spending time with family and friends.
