A little bit about yourself

I'm a single parent, a sailor, tramper and a graduate of the New School for Social Research (political sociology) and Auckland Uni (education). My concerns are inequality and social justice in general, global warming and all environmental issues, and democratisation of international institutions.

What would you be interested in discussing at these sessions?

Utopian thinking and social change from the bottom up. Accountability of elites and practical action for people and the planet.


I'm a Kiwi guy back in Auckland after studying in New York, living in Palo Alto and teaching in Oakland, California. Previously I was a left-wing political activist - well, still am but not so active. More of a greenie and a democratic socialist.
