Bio: 

My first experience of HAI was at an introduction evening in Tamarama in 2008. The experience was confronting, yet it also ‘pinched’ me into action to attend a full workshop. I remember walking into my first workshop and thinking “what the hell am I doing here, I have nothing in common with these people”. Two days past and I felt connected to everyone in the room, all 40 of them. That is a great feeling.

I grew up in England where politeness and a class structure gets in the way of authenticity and intimacy. I studied Aerospace Engineering and lived in my head. Frankly it did not look good, I was a human ‘doing’. HAI has been a great help in learning how to be a human ‘being’.
