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

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



I’ve worked at UNSW as a Legal Counsel, UNSW Sustainability Director and currently Director of UNSW Safety and Sustainability.

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



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





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
