I've just released my first book, "Faith, Death & Pills", which tells the story of my journey to Jesus, the death of my first child, and my battle with mental illness.

In my professional life, I’ve had the opportunity to help start, grow and guide some of the world’s largest and most influential social justice organisations.


I have an Arts/Law degree, which I've never really used, and I received the Australian Leadership Award, which I never really understood.


I recently returned to Melbourne after four years living in Johannesburg, so at least finding a quality coffee is no longer an issue.

I'm a privileged white Australian, who cares very little about the quality of my nation's sporting teams and very much about the quality of my daily coffee.

I'm a husband to a remarkable woman, who initially thought I was an intellectual snob and now realises she was absolutely right.

I'm a father of a 5-year-old son, Lwandle, and a brand new baby daughter, Ndalo-Enhle.

And I'm a child of God.
