About Jeremy Picone

Jeremy Picone has been part of The Global Poverty Project's Australian team since 2009 and wishes it known he liked them before it was cool. After studying Political Science, Social Ecology and Economics at the University of Tasmania, he worked six years with A Fairer World to deliver education programs on diversity and global citizenship. In his spare time, he is a committed advocate for the end of poverty with RESULTS International (Australia), and loves exploring the Tasmanian bush.
