Rafael Morrissey


I am a Colombian adoptee raised and living in Sydney, Australia. After graduating with a Bachelors of Urban Planning in 2014, I worked as a project manager for a property development firm. Since then I have worked across the NSW Transport Department in transport planning, precinct activation and land use planning roles.

In 2017, I returned to Colombia for the first time to reunite with my birth mother and family. This experience has taught me the importance of connecting with other Colombian adoptees for guidance and support throughout the search and reunion process. I plan to return to Colombia in 2019 for 12 months to spend time with my family and undertake voluntary work.
