John Haly is a freelancer for whom the changing political landscape from that which he grew up with, has induced him to write of his concerns for social justice and political issues. Educated initially with a Bachelor of Business, he followed these later with diplomas in multimedia and graphic design.
When not writing, he manages a freelance business, Halyucinations Studios in Sydney, doing work for clients in photograph, video production, design, IT support and web development and management.
Beyond his studio, John is the secretary of the film collaborative, NAFA and an active founding member of the Australia Arts Party. His previous history as former IT contractor and project manager for the ABC, the Reserve and a commercial bank, mining, transport, computer companies, government, university and a number of outsourcing firms has provided a background in a diverse range of commercial and public service organisations.
A fifth generation Australian born son of an English teacher and a businessman – whose contributions to the finance sector were recognised with an Order of Australia – he has lived and worked overseas, although mainly around Australia and lately in Sydney, NSW.
