Drawing on his work experience he has brought a depth of project management, attention to detail & community building to the organisation.
He has been involved in nearly all aspects of the organisation over the years & while embracing a big vision for the future he is pragmatic about the time & small steps needed to facilitate this.

All it takes is one true connection with a good adult male role model. This is enough to give our boys a reason to fight, for a good life and to be the best man they know they can be.
