Meet Our Team

Our Plastics Pirate crew is dedicated to giving plastic a value by proving plastics are a mismanaged and fantastic resource – which can benefit not just the environment and the communities, but the businesses and organisations whose plastics we process.


Connor Clarke

Early experiences and challenges as a nurse in Africa ignited a 30-year journey to return to remote coastal communities with safe water and health. It has meant a lifetime of drive and discovery for me. Considered careers in medicine and marine, the unusual and out of the way places I’ve chosen to travel, the connections and skill sets I have acquired, have all been designed to equip me with most of what I need to have registered Plastics Pirate as a for purpose business in 2020.
Always passionate and driven to effect positive change for people and place, I am honoured to bring the solutions for Oceans and Environments that we are right now to the World. It feels like it’s just in the nick of time too!

Master at Arms

I’ve always been passionate about the environment we live in, especially the oceans. Surfing, sailing, fishing and diving were a huge part of my childhood, I felt at home on or in the ocean. Completing a mechanic apprenticeship in Perth, found me bound for The Kimberlie’s and commercial fishing. This is where I became acutely aware of human impact on our oceans. Even 25 years ago, we found floating rafts of plastic off-shore and most remote beaches on the Kimberly Coast were covered in plastics. Affected, I moved to North Queensland. Into marine tourism and fell in love with the waters of The Great Barrier Reef. No surprise, I found plastics here too! Wanting and needing to change it, I began volunteering, doing beach clean-ups and anything I could to make a difference. Starting to lose faith with it all somewhat, my long-time friend Connor was launching Plastics Pirate at last and needed help. Here was a way to effect real change. Solution driven change.
We all have a responsibility to the Oceans and Mother Earth. We need to change the way we see, use and recycle plastics. And the time for that change is now!

The ocean is my potion. Growing up sailing with my family has instilled in me an awe and passion for the Ocean, which developed into a 15-year career in marine tourism. Loving and sharing the beauty of the sea and all her creatures. I found I was becoming increasingly aware of the awful environmental disaster we are creating, and this drove my passion for the ocean into a deep responsibility of care. Joining the Plastics Pirate crew has been the best way I’ve found for me to have the greatest impact I can and be the changemaker I know I am. I’ve discovered my crew at the perfect time and super exited that that time is now!
