Our Plastics Pirate crew harbour the skills and experience to make a real difference in reducing the plastic consuming the world’s landfill and polluting our oceans.
Meet Our Team
Our Plastics Pirate team is dedicated to giving plastic a value by proving plastic is a mismanaged and fantastic resource – which can benefit not just the environment but the communities, businesses and organisations whose plastic we process.
Greg is a highly valued member of the team and an instrumental figure in the development and future of Plastics Pirate. Being an extremely approachable and consistent ideas man, Greg is an absolute GOTO member of the team.
If your'e lucky enough to be the outdoors in Far North Queensland, you will probably find Greg in the rainforest and creeks with his kids, laughing a lot and generally having fun.
He has worked in the fields of Anaesthesia, Intensive Care, Hyperbaric and Dive Medicine as well as Aeromedical Retrievals. He also worked as a General Practitioner and Anaesthetist at Thursday Island Hospital and in the Torres Straits where he developed a strong penchant for remote medicine.
Following this, Jim trained and specialised in Emergency Medicine at the Cairns Base Hospital and currently spends most of his time as a Consultant on the busy floor of the Emergency Department.
Jim makes himself available 24/7 as a consultant for Plastics Pirate.
His wealth of knowledge and 'out of the box' approach makes him an integral part of the team.
Jim is a dedicated family man who enjoys growing tropical fruit and brewing fine craft ales, helping to keep the band of Pirates merry.
Jess has also won awards as a Barista, which prove to be an important part in keeping our band of Pirates alert and in front. (He is also in strong competition with our Medical Director in the ale brewing category) and loves to win the game. He is a 'doer', energetic, smart and lots of fun to be around.
