About me

Location melbourne, Australia
Introduction I am passionate about human stories, music, art, community building and the pursuit of truth. I have always been interested in the perennial questions of existence, mortality and life purpose. At medical school I held the brain of a cadaver in my hands and wondered how the multitude of human emotion and experience could be contained within a kilogram of white and grey matter. Throughout my medical training I travelled the landscape of human stories, both within and without the hospital walls. From the rustic streets of Havana, along the devastated shores of post-tsunami Sri-Lanka and the musical shantytowns of West Africa. I am constantly fascinated by the universal struggle of humankind and inspired by stories of hope, creativity and survival. When I'm not helping to mend minds in the psychiatric wards of Melbourne I make documentaries and write about anything that captures my curiousity.
