Biography

I am a social entrepreneur committed to reducing unemployment and increasing vocational skills for young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds. I'm astonished by hardened attitudes towards supporting vulnerable people into work and believe work-integrated social enterprise can be an effective employment alternative for young people struggling.

 

As a data analyst by trade, I put into action the idea that technology can create work and wealth for disadvantaged communities. This is why I'm the CEO of Australian Spatial Analytics, a social enterprise that employs and trains young autistic adults to provide B2B data solutions to valued clients.

 

I'm interested in American history and politics, reading novels at local cafes and pretending to be more accomplished at guitar than I actually am. I'm striving to learn how to invest in creative partnerships and become a more emotionally intelligent leader for those I can support.
