Biography

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.

Skills & Expertise

  • Social Enterprise fundamentals
  • Relationships (staff, stakeholders etc.)
  • Balancing work and life
  • Board relations
  • Public speaking, media relations etc.

"My proudest moment was receiving the "You're Awesome" Award (for doing what you say you're doing) by students of the Melbourne Academy, a consortium of young people affected by homelessness or hardship."
