About me

I am a social entrepreneur who is working to create change in the Australian disability sector. Inspired by my experiences as the sibling of a young man with cerebral palsy, I co-founded Fighting Chance in 2011, a not-for-profit organization which today supports more than 450 young adults with disability.   In 2014, my brother Jordan and I also co-founded Hireup, an online platform which gives people with disability the power to find, hire and manage their support workers. With more than 70,000 registered users on the platform, Hireup stands well positioned to revolutionize the attendant care space in coming years.
