I am an animal rights activist and also get involved in human rights and environmental issues. I co-host a podcast that covers all of these issues. I also teach on social movements and social change in Sociology and Anthropology and have a PhD in Sociology, which explored the animal rights movement.
Beyond activism and uni, I like to play ice-hockey, travel and spend time with my girlfriend and my dog.
I recorded some music and comedy from the event Occupy Art Lab, which involved artists who supported the Occupy movement. I played some of these recordings on the podcast I co-host with my partner – Progressive Podcast Australia. This included a song from Ray’s band Zeks – Ray is another Indymedia host. Ray heard the podcast and invited us to come down and get involved with Indymedia on RTR.
Getting to speak to heaps of great activists and others striving for positive social change.
Doing a whole interview and then realising it hadn’t recorded – maybe not strange but very annoying!
Understorey because I’m really interested in environmental issues.
Teaching sociology, podcasting, ice-hockey, animal rights activism.
