Recently I have worked as an educator helping to engage people in a holistic approach to alleviating poverty and marginalisation. My main focus has been on youth and young adults but I have also worked with adults. Whether it be facilitating a small group discussion, presenting an interactive workshop or running a simulation game for 150 students I am an enthusiastic and passionate presenter.
I have many years experience working with youth and young adults including six years as a youth worker with Fusion International and two and a half years as the NSW Youth Coordinator for TEAR Australia.
I am also part of the coordinating team for Black Stump, a Christian festival centered around teaching, arts and music.
Through the years I have been an MC for several different events and gatherings, including weddings, youth adventure day trips and trivia nights.
I also obtained a Certificate 4 in Television production (credit level) in 2002.
Please contact me if you think I might be a good fit for something you are planning. I am available for casual, short term and long term projects.

“Robert (or Howie as we all referred to him) is a very creative community educator. He has a great capacity to engage students in the issues of global poverty, informing and expanding their world view and at the same time, calling them to meaningful responses. I really appreciated being on the same team with Howie. He is industrious, creative, diligent and passionate.
I have no hesitation in recommending Howie to anyone interested in a skilled community educator and/or youth worker.”

“Robert was the MC recently at my wife and my wedding. He was engaging, funny, confident and respectful of all that we wanted on our day. He made the reception comfortable for all. Would strongly recommend Robert as an MC for any function – I’m sure he will add life and laughter to it!”
