👋 G'day! I'm
Howdy! The name’s Dan, but due to an oversupply of Daniels in our organisation I go by “Gates” or “Gatesy”.
I’m passionate about creating positive change in the world in whatever space I can lend a hand. I joined HelpingGroup in March because I was inspired by HelpingGroup’s vision for combatting the dual crises of the bushfires and COVID-19.
I’m a big fan of country music, so if you see a white Camry go past with Johnny Cash pumping at full volume, it’s probably me.
I am a current Bachelor of Laws and Global Studies Student at Monash University. Throughout my degrees, I have used my skills to support organisations doing meaningful work to help others. I’ve previously worked in organisations promoting environmental sustainability, access to education, and support for people who use drugs.
HelpingGroup acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we
