Outdoor recreation has been both a professional direction and personal theme for Tom Stranger. He enjoys numerous outdoor activities that allow for an uncompetitive but visceral interaction with the natural world. After a history of working in outdoor recreation his focus shifted towards working with young people with complex needs-drug and alcohol rehabilitation, homelessness, neurological impairment and mental health challenges. Building upon his BA of Social Science, Tom has recently completed and thoroughly enjoyed a Master of Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney. His personal history, professional experiences working in Community Services, and tertiary studies, have seen his interests narrow upon the heightened public discourse surrounding gender based violence. He’s currently working as a landscape gardener and residing by the harbor waters of Sydney with his dear wife Cat.
