I wish to begin my profile by acknowledging and paying respect to the traditional owners, the Jagera People. Ugarapul People, Yuggera People and the Elders both past & present, on whose land I walk, I work and I live. I prefer to describe myself as a Community Jester. This means I live my life as a social and public response to injustice and exploitation.My passion for justice was nurtured by my father's work with street people in the St Vincent de Paul society and my life experience as a gay man. I'm a guitarist / singer who loves music about people and social issues. I have walked the streets in protest since my teens to raise awareness of peace and non-violence. I have danced in Ashby Hall in Geelong, streets in Manila, Story Hall in Melbourne,remote villages in PNG,the Opera House on New Year's Eve,naked at RAW in Caboolture in 2005. In the last 54 years I have lived in: Annerley Qld Clayton North,Victoria Collingwood, Victoria, Fairfield, Brisbane Fitzroy, Victoria Kiunga, Western Province, Papua New Guinea Leichhardt NSW North Geelong, Victoria North Melborne, Victoria Plumpton, NSW Seddon, Victoria West End, Brisbane, Queensland West Geelong, Victoria I write everything from web pages through to media releases.I have become an expert at writing online profiles and have an ability to create interesting typos. I have collected hats from all over the globe and when in public I dress for comfort and expression. I prefer to wear t/shirts with a message and buy clothes from local African and Indigenous communities. And yes, I do own a set of "tails" for very formal events like royal weddings and papal visits. I celebrate my Celtic heritage whenever I can with the wearing the Caledonian Kilt.
