Long joined Skyline in 2006 as a student at Chandler Secondary College now Keysborough Secondary College and went onto studying a Bachelor of Arts/Communications degree majoring in Film and Television. Since then, Long has worked for world class entertainment companies and venues such as Walt Disney World, Monash University, the Melbourne Recital Centre, Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre.
He reflects on his experiences in the Skyline Program as the moment he realised the immense power of stories, both the ones you tell yourself and to others. Long is now honoured to be elected as the Wellbeing and Engagement Alumni Leader. He believes that the Skyline Alumni community will continue to flourish by receiving a gift with grace and to give generously, and hopes, within this position, to cultivate the spirit of reciprocity.
Previously as a Skyline Wellbeing Facilitator, Long was able to experience first-hand how appreciative alumni were to be valued as part of a community. He has since realised the importance of creating deeper connection and strives to build a Skyline Community that is “resilient and stronger than the sum of our parts”.
Long currently resides in London and enjoys the challenges and rewards as a Visitor Experience Supervisor at the V&A, the leading museum of Art and Design. His collaborated piece, Liminal, exploring queer Asian identity will be on display at the British Museum for London Pride.
