What does life look for you now?

In 2010 my wife and I made the big decision to leave Melbourne and pursue work opportunities in Canada. As much as I miss family and friends back home this has been a great opportunity to us, allowing us to explore another part of the work and being lucky to live in one of the worlds most beautiful cities, Vancouver.

Life has changed dramatically over the past 5 years with the birth of my daughter London and with a move into working in the not-for-profit sector in 2016 were I now have the privilege to lead the Phoenix Society, an amazing organization providing mental health and addiction treatment services in an integrated setting which also offers supportive housing, employment and educational opportunities for people in recovery or existing the criminal justice system.

I am also in my final semester of my MBA, so to say life has been extremely busy is an understatement.

Where are you now?
