Educator and public speaker based in Brisbane, Australia.
I’m passionate about finding ways to engage with people across issues like Domestic Violence, bullying, racism and Inclusion. I am a guest speaker and educator/facilitator at schools, universities, corporate settings and with elite sporting codes. I have worked with Rugby Australia as their education provider in their “lifeskills” program since 2008.
One of the things that really drives me is a project called A Few Good Men. It’s essentially a men’s revolution, a movement aimed at getting us men to take total ownership of the way we treat women.
Violence against women is one of the great unspoken tragedies of our time and the amazing thing about it is that it can only be fixed by one group in society – men! Read more about A Few Good Men here.
I’m a White Ribbon Ambassador, which means I stand up, speak up and act to prevent men’s violence against women. This complements the work I do with the MATE Bystander Education program at Griffith University where I am one of their lead facilitators.
I am a presenter for Stymie, the renowned harm-reporting tool used in schools throughout Australia. Stymie’s founder, Rachel Downie, was Queensland’s Australian of the Year in 2020. I am so privileged to work alongside Rachel, delivering the Stymie program in schools throughout Australia.
I run lifeskills programs for elite sporting teams, schools and community groups. I also work with these organisations in other ways. Here’s part 1 of a 3 part documentary film I produced for Surfing Australia, tackling the issue of illicit drugs in a way that tries to engage with youth.
I am a journalist and writer. I write on cricket issues for one of India's biggest newspapers, Mid-day. Previously, I was a write for ESPN Cricinfo for 8 years. I was a regular contributor to The Drum website on the ABC - here is a sample of an article I wrote in 2008 about "life balance" for elite athletes. Prior to that I was Manager of the Griffith University Sports College where I worked for 10 years after I returned from playing first-class cricket in the UK.
