Environment, Wellbeing, Equity, Sustainability


My Work

I work at the University of New South Wales as the Director for UNSW Sustainability.

We connect people across UNSW with information, tools, and inspiration to make our campus more environmentally sustainable.

I’m interested in social change, social justice and sustainability and ideas about making the world a better place.

Work History

Prior to working for UNSW Sustainability I was Legal Counsel at UNSW.

Prior to that I worked for Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, the NSW Ombudsman’s Office, Turner Freeman Lawyers, trade unions as an organiser and research officer (mostly with the LHMU, now United Voice, but also briefly for the PSA, CFMEU).

I’ve also worked for CCH and Thomsons as a legal writer and editor and the University of Sydney as a sessional academic (tutor) teaching industrial relations.

Back when I first a University student I was the President of the National Union of Students, NSW Branch and National President of the National Organisation of Labor Students.

In My Spare Time

I try to be a great dad to my two young sons and a good partner, a good friend, work colleague and person on the street.

I like to keep as healthy and ride my bike pretty much every day and do yoga as often as I can.

I’m a keen observer of politics and am an occasional activist. I’m also interested in design, technology and lots of other stuff.
