He could have grown bitter and jaded, but instead opted for a career in radio. Here, he found a broader and more receptive audience for his musical stylings. Eventually this lead him to managing a record store for around five years, where he not only realised he had wasted his life on dance music, but that there are also a lot more Nickleback fans in the world than he first thought.
These days he works in community development, volunteers in his spare time, and dabbles with photography on the side. On weekends you’ll find him catching up with friends around the Brunswick / Fitzroy area, going to markets and op-shopping, or doing something music related.
He is passionate about social justice and civil liberties, and thinks New Zealand might be a good option if Tony Abbott doesn't disappear soon. He also has very little time for people who speak about themselves in the third person. “How contrived”, he was recently heard to remark.
