I am a lawyer, musician and consultant based in Sydney, Australia. I received both my Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Laws from Western Sydney University, and my Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from the College of Law. I am admitted as a lawyer of the Supreme Court of New South Wales.
On this site you will find information about me as a professional, and materials related to law and music such as essays, analyses, notes, scores and recordings. Feel free to contact me using the details further below if you have any questions or comments relating to these materials, or if you have any suggestions for additional material.
You will also find information related to my other pursuits. I spent many years as a digital rights activists and I still put the skills I gained to use as an amateur journalist and coder, in addition to my hobbies of photography and family history research. As a firm believer in copyleft ideals, much of the content on this website has been licensed permissively so that people can reuse the materials if they wish.
My blog is the kitchen sink of this site — it's where everything that doesn't fit elsewhere ends up. Ramblings and updates on all sorts of things go there, while more formal content can be found on the relevant pages (you're more likely to find unfocused political rants on my blog than thoroughly-researched articles on law!).
