About Me.

Hi, I'm Dylan.

I grew up in Fitzroy Crossing, a remote town in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. It's there I discovered my love and passion for storytelling and social justice issues. I began as a broadcaster at Wangki Radio, a community station in Fitzroy Crossing, that led to me getting involved with SYN Media.

 

For two years I hosted The Edge, a weekly regional current affairs radio program which was broadcast throughout the North-West of Australia and into Melbourne. The Edge won the 2019 Community Radio Award for Excellence in News & Current Affairs.

I have also written for The Guardian and the Foundation for Young Australians worked with the ABC, UN Youth Australia and appeared on ABC's Q&A program twice.

I am passionate about building a better future for everyone, especially young people of today. I have advocated for and given evidence before the Commonwealth Parliament to extend voting rights to Australians who are 16 and 17 years-old and have spoken at a variety of events such as the Festival for Dangerous Ideas. 

Awards.
