Hi there, I'm Mickey.
I co-create strategies and cultures that guide organisations to better collaborate and make a positive impact.
I work with people and teams to build meaningful relationships and strengthen capacity so that we can make a better future together.
I'm focused on systemic change that makes our communities freer, fairer, more sustainable and creative. I believe the key is understanding and working with networks, narratives, and nature while centring Indigenous perspectives (Community, Culture, Country).
If you have a similar purpose and you'd like to work with me, get in touch. I have a list of my services below and a portfolio of my work here.

Speaking on 'Impact' and 'Fellowship Vs Leadership'
'Mickey made me better at my job and I learnt an incredible amount from working with him. He is very generous with his knowledge and experience and he is not precious over ownership of ideas. He genuinely wants what's best for the cause. Mickey is a great person to collaborate with and will always put forward his frank and honest opinion. I would always seek his advice and counsel before making any important decision.' - Paddy Batchelor, community organiser and political strategist.

Acknowledgement of Country
I acknowledge and respect the First Peoples of the lands, waters, and skies where I live and work. This is mainly on the lands of the Gadigal of the Eora Nation and the lands of the Dharawal of the Yuin Nation. I acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded and that this always was and always will be the lands, waters, and skies of the First Peoples. I acknowledge and respect their ongoing connection to Country, community, and to the oldest living cultures in the world. I respect Elders past and present and I act respectfully considering the generations to come.
I try to embody my respect by participating in communities, organisations, and projects that centre Indigenous ways of knowing, doing, and being. I have worked with the NSW Reconciliation Council, National Centre of Indigenous Excellence, National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academy, Arrilla, Recognise, and Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity. I pay the rent, currently 1% of our household income, to Waminda (a local organisation focused on First Peoples' wellbeing), Original Power (a country-wide organisation focused on advocacy for First Peoples' self-determination), and Indigenous Crisis Response and Recovery (an organisation set up to support First Peoples affected by the 2020 bushfires).
