I am the CEO and co-founder of HoMie, an organisation that supports young people affected by homelessness or hardship to equip them with the skills, confidence and experiences to be more work-ready and better prepared for their future.
I have now been with HoMie for over five years, and my first "job" prior to this was as a Manny (male nanny). I am extremely passionate about developing innovative solutions and logical value-adds to long-standing social issues. I truly believe that opportunity is everything, and seek to become a well-rounded leader to ensure that more young people are afforded one.
I am an avid film lover (from Fast & the Furious to French New Wave), and have often been known to frequent the cinemas by myself. I also love listening to podcasts (mostly about movies) whilst walking my dog, Sadie.
