Cameron Howe is best known for being the founder of the Carrum and Patterson Lakes Forum, which advocates for resident’s rights, and acts as a voice on local issues, successfully overseeing the funding of projects both locally and regionally.
His community advocacy began at age 16, while completing a major assessment task on erosion at Carrum Foreshore for VCE Geography. This would lead him to submit a proposal to manage foreshore erosion to authorities, and go on to found the Carrum and Patterson Lakes Forum to continue these efforts.
By age 22, Cameron had begun working alongside major media outlets, including the Herald Sun, The Age and Nine News in the context of local community issues. He holds a Bachelor of Business (Management and Marketing) from RMIT University, and now writes for independent publications, in addition to consulting as a marketing strategist.
His childhood was dominated often on a daily basis by his mother’s concert piano pieces being played for up to five hours. From painting and photography to the work he does in the media, Cameron is the lover of the arts, with an abstract expressionist style that encapsulates emotion and story-telling into figures.
Cameron is widely regarded for his commitment to the local community, and is a patrolling member of his local life saving club.
