I'm a son, a brother, a father. I'm a coach, a facilitator, a public speaker. I love learning, sport and am passionate about living life with integrity. I work in the area of international development, aid and advocacy. I also know life can be difficult. I've been divorced, been involuntarily terminated from employment, been to way too many funerals, experienced my own personal burnout, juggle life as a single parent and seek to influence and 'enthuse the unenthused' around global justice issues. I don't shy away from grappling with life's big issues, including my own mortality. I'm currently doing a Masters in Clinical Counselling. So I know life gets messy, is complex and can be draining. I hold true that we all need support structures in life. We all need anchors that hold us firm when life's storms come.
