Biography

My passion lies in the way that our society treats its most vulnerable citizens, and the way that innovative social services can respond to complex social issues. I spent my career working with young people experiencing homelessness, and I now combine that experience with a practice in Human Centred Design. Using the lens of Design, I seek to apply a creative capacity to some of society’s most complex spaces.

 

My most significant achievement in social service design was six years leading the development of Foyer Oxford, Australia's largest supported housing project for young people. Over the past two years, I've developed an in-house Design practice at Anglicare WA, one of Western Australia's largest non-profits, working to rethink the way we respond to social issues like financial crisis, homelessness, family separation and youth unemployment.

 

I'm a husband and a dad, with a dangerous woodworking hobby, and I make a mean Paella.
