My Book Cover art for Routledge, London and Dr Kyle Grayson's book The Cultural Politics of Targeted Killing, 2017

Book Cover Art for Dr Kyle Grayson_RoutledgeLondon 2017

The deployment of remotely piloted air platforms (RPAs) - or drones - has become a defining feature of contemporary counter-insurgency operations. Scholarly analysis and public debate has primarily focused on two issues: the legality of targeted killing and whether the practice is effective at disrupting insurgency networks, and the intensive media and activist scrutiny of the policy processes through which targeted killing decisions have been made. While contributing to these ongoing discussions, this book aims to determine how targeted killing has become possible in contemporary counter-insurgency operations undertaken by liberal regimes.

I've had a few years break when my father was unwell and passed, and I was also working in Melbourne in multicultural policy doing social cohesion work there, which was intense. I'm now back based in Perth, Western Australia and loving it. The peace, the spirituality of the land and people here are in my blood.

Some great
art moments for me
