Like all Melburnians, I ended up in Alice Springs and worked at the Central Land Council as a lawyer from 2004-2008. I learnt about Aboriginal land and things that are important to Aboriginal people. It challenged me to get outside my little box and think about what I really value. I loved the country.
Changing gears, I moved to Canberra to help the Government establish Australia’s carbon offsets scheme, the Carbon Farming Initiative, from 2009-2013. As part of the legislation team, I worked with the Indigenous sector to develop the provisions around Aboriginal land and native title.
Combining this experience, I help Aboriginal Carbon Fund to advise Aboriginal carbon projects. I am interested in projects that rebalance how we manage our land and build in sustainable social outcomes for people living in remote places. I can also provide financial and legal advice if required.
Please give me a call if you want to talk your carbon project or ideas, Aboriginal land and native title, or the Carlton Blues! I live in Melbourne.

My role here at AbCF is to connect and influence Corporations to purchase carbon credits from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander carbon project owners and to build relationships with Traditional Owners and Communities and to fully understand the core benefits that make such a significant positive impact on the ground in these Communities.
