Meet our team

Faizi - Team Coordinator

Hi, I'm Faizi and I’m the Coordinator of Middle Years and Youth Services at City of Port Phillip.

Improving the quality of life and wellbeing of others is my passion and pursuit. With a strong sense of service, I want to utilize knowledge of clients’ behavior and provide an appropriate support system to assist them with living a vigorous life.

I love spending time with my family especially my sons, playing guitar, getting to the gym, playing sport, eating, and exploring different cuisines.

Daniel - Middle Years Team Leader

Hi, I’m Daniel and I am the Middle Years Team Leader at the City of Port Phillip.

My goal at Council is to promote inclusivity and participation for young people by developing projects and linking services. I love working with young people and being given the opportunity to have a positive impact on their lives.  

Some of my interests include travelling, playing guitar, going to see live music and watching the footy (go Cats!)

Melinda - Support Worker

Hi, I'm Melinda and I am the Middle Years and Youth Support Lead Worker at the City of Port Phillip Council.

I love supporting young people and their families because I believe with the right mentors and opportunities in life, you can truly change your path. I speak from personal experience.

Some things I love includes cardio boxing, poetry (I know what parallels, huh), fresh chai lattes with honey, bike riding and for a couple of summers learning to skateboard along St Kilda foreshore.

Jay-Dee - Youth Engagement & Participation Officer

Hi, I'm Jay-Dee, the Youth Engagement and Participation Officer at Port Phillip!

My role involves facilitating our two volunteer youth committees, the Youth Advisory Committee and the FReeZA committee.

I'm passionate about working with young people to achieve their dreams, encouraging them to step out of their comfort zones and try new and exciting things as well as connect with like-minded young people.

When I'm not at work you'll find me behind the decks spinning some tunes, taking photos, going to gigs, painting or riding my bike (yes, I have A LOT of hobbies, I know!).

Scobie - Youth Program and Development Officer

Hi, I’m Scobie and I’m the Youth Program and Development Officer at the City of Port Phillip.

I’m a staunch advocate of youth-led community building initiatives and strive to facilitate high level co-design projects with young people. I believe young people with lived experience are best placed to build solutions to the challenges they face, and my role is to listen and support them to affect change in their communities.

When I’m not working with young people, you can find me frantically cooking up a new story as a journalist and filmmaker.
