You’ll enjoy this interview with Michael Brown. It is so refreshing to speak to a 21 year old who is putting himself out to the world because, in his words, “My life is too good not to share.”
Michael is studying a Bachelor in Mathematics and Statistics as well as working at a large supermarket in London, serving as a team leader, applying for managerial duties. He also shares how he woke up one day and thought he could play the piano so he went out and bought a keyboard and a couple of months later he was playing at a friend’s wedding in front of 150 people. Brave, eh! And you’ll love his idea about Philosophy on Whiteboard. Enjoy!
Oh, BTW, Michael is the son of Dragana Brown (who will be the guest in the next Fiery Service interview.)
This interview is a little out of the ordinary because it is an interview WITH me rather than by me.
I was recently cleaning up computer files and came across this audio recording that I had forgotten all about. Sarah Flenley and I were working on a UniMed project a few years ago and we were talking about the need for more people with interviewing skills. Sarah expressed an interest in doing interviews so – I may have suggested she interview me for the practice. I can’t remember because it was November 2014, so there has been a lot of water under the bridge since then. When I re-listened to the interview last week, I thought that Sarah did a great job so I’ve asked her permission to share it with the Fiery Service listeners.
I’ve been interviewed several times over the years but generally about some specific project or event I was involved in. This interview is about my early years in Byron Bay, starting community radio and interviewing, which is something I love doing. The interview starts with Sarah asking me WHY I do volunteer community work.
Gayle is innately curious about people; how they see the world, how they position themselves in the world and why they do what they do. She loves interviewing people for these same reasons.
