Hi, I'm Gefion! I'm a Pirate living in Oxford and looking forward to getting involved with the Pirate Party in the UK. I've been a member of the UK party since 2011, but haven't really had the chance to properly get involved yet (although I'm representing the Party for the International team in Paris this week!). That's because I've been busy helping the Pirate cause in Germany. I've been very involved with the PiratenPartei and am currently a member of the national board. I'm looking for a change.
My term on the German Pirate Party board expires in June, and I feel that I've done all I can in Germany for now. So its time for a new challenge that lets me make the most of my skills and lets me do the things I'm interested in.
For the last four years I've achieved a lot with the PiratenPartei. I've built their news service, run their press team, been involved with their election campaigns and helped with the organisation. Along the way, I've also done some work for the PPI, and created the international pirate news portal "Pirate Times". Its been hard, but I've learned a lot. Sometimes how things should be done, sometimes how they shouldn't! I'm hoping to bring some of that experience and my skills, as well as a pair of fresh eyes and an extra pair of hands to the Pirate Party in the UK.
