Hi, my name is Aden.
I am a freelance writer and performer with experience across a variety of sectors and industries.
I believe in the power of good ideas well communicated.
At the L.e.a.r.n. Foundation for Autism we introduced the latest behavioural science to our young clients in East Fremantle. At UWA, I developed the proposal for the McCusker Centre for Citizenship and brought a long-running American tradition of service learning to Australia. Most recently, I founded a women's health impact enterprise in Northern Tanzania after observing similar initiatives at work in Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda. None of these ideas were new, but they needed to be translated and communicated effectively to spread to new communities.
Most of my work has involved the written word, but I am also an experienced professional performer. I've acted as Master of Ceremonies for a number of conferences, including the IAVE World Volunteer Conference and the AMSA Global Health Conference. I perform live comedy with The Big HOO-HAA, Perth's longest-running comedy troupe. I have performed improvised comedy in Cape Town, Chicago, and around Australia.
I now focus my efforts on helping others communicate their ideas using the written and spoken word. Whether it's an organisational cultural change program, a community fundraising initiative, or helping a leader with their public speaking efforts. I can assist with communication at all stages, including research, sense-making and analysis, and communication and presentation.
I am currently still living and working in Northern Tanzania, but I invite remote work from Australian for-purpose organisations. If you are interested to work together, please e-mail me.
