Who We Are




I’ll Be Your First Mate is run by a small group of Melbourne-based volunteers: two academics and one visual artist, with the assistance of two tech whizzes. Tia Di Biase, Daniella Trimboli and Ry Wilkin initiated the project in 2014, though their hope has always been to see other people take ownership of IBYFM in their own unique ways.
