Dexter is a Masters student at the University of Melbourne, where he has studied since 2011. Last year he completed a Bachelor of Arts with majors in Politics, and Media and Communications. He writes a column for the University student magazine Farrago exploring the idea that Melbourne is the sport capital of Australia by examining a different major event each issue. Dexter is also the Admin Intern at Voiceworks, a literary magazine for young writers located in the Wheeler Centre. Previously, he has reviewed books for both the Readings Summer Guide and the Readings Monthly. He has also written about American politician and presidential hopeful Ted Cruz for the online publication Centre Thought.
Having spent a semester abroad in Manchester, United Kingdom, Dexter is a fervent supporter of Manchester City, has a subscription to The Economist, and hopes to one day reside in London as a football club owning Russian oligarch. However in the meantime he can be found wandering around Melbourne University’s Parkville Campus, loitering in Fitzroy, and occasionally in Melbourne’s leafy Eastern Suburbs rediscovering his roots. He has a passion for overpriced inner-city coffee, obscure political ideologies like Neo-Conservatism, and the first ten seasons of The Simpsons. The reason we have elected officials is so we don’t have to think all the time.
