About me

I am a proud Noongar man, educator, mentor and entrepreneur who’s passionate about eliminating the “gaps” between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians. I hope to combine my background in indigenous education, finance and health & fitness to develop multi-levelled solutions to the complex social and cultural issues faced by Aboriginals and Torres Straight Islanders in today’s climate.   When I’m not working, you can find me on the hardwood or oval trying to keep my glory days alive or coaching the future generation of superstars. I also enjoy music production, filmmaking and tutoring indigenous students.
"It’s my hope to develop grassroots programs that work to close socioeconomic gaps, while also ensuring the long-term survival of the world’s oldest culture through the development of community-driven policy change. By lifting our own people, we can lift our nation and the world."
