Biography

I am the Founder of FreddyMatch, a charity dedicated to increasing volunteering rates in Australia that uses a unique algorithm to match charities and volunteers.

 

Volunteering has always been part of my life, particularly engaging with charities who struggle to find volunteers. I have been lucky enough to do a huge range of volunteering work from STEM education in local schools to serving as an independent monitor in maximum security prisons.

 

I was motivated to start FreddyMatch after the loss of my first son Freddy in 2017. FreddyMatch has been a true passion project, honouring Freddy and giving me the opportunity to use "maths for good”.

 

FreddyMatch combines my two great passions: volunteering and maths, time away from FreddyMatch is spent outdoors with my young family, running or playing the piano.
