I am the co-founder of The Ecosystem Lab, a social enterprise that uses “ecosystem thinking” to grow the innovation capacity of organisations and communities. Over the past few years I enabled thousands of young Australians to learn computer programming by catalysing an ecosystem of over 130 CoderDojo clubs. I also co-initiated EDfutures, one of Australia’s first K-12 education ecosystems, which enables teachers, students, technologists and employers to collaboratively help the next generation create sustainable, prosperous futures.
In 2017 I travelled abroad in 2017 as a Westpac Social Change Fellow, investigating how to build a learning society geared towards excellence, creativity and innovation. I’m an alumni of the University of Western Australia's Social Impact program, which I completed under scholarship from the National Centre for Social Impact. I am currently completing a Masters Degree in Community Development, and was recognised as a Murdoch University Learning Excellence Academy Student Fellow for my extra-curricular work catalysing the university’s innovation ecosystem.
