Harrison Kopp

Harrison is a 3rd year Curtin student currently on a writing work placement with Curtin Careers, Employment & Leadership. This prac forms part of his studies – the overarching structure being a double BA / BCom degree – with majors in the highly complementary Professional Writing & Publishing and Marketing.

Outside of his studies Harrison really, really likes playing soccer. His other passion is listening to very, very old 70s and 80s heavy metal music, and then writing about this genre of music with flair. This is also mainly due to the fact that he can’t actually play any of it!

Beyond the heavy metal old school groove, Harrison loves a good debate and sitting down with a good book.
