Short Bio:

During my childhood I learnt about the importance of sustainable living from my parents and how our actions impact the planet. For the last seven years I’ve been working as a boilermaker welder in heavy construction and mining projects in Australia. I started to get disillusioned with the damaging effects of the industry and the lengths companies go to, to cover the destructive nature of their greed and instead wanted to use my skills for something more positive.
