1. How did your start-up/business journey begin? 

I work with an existing not for profit organisation, World Vision Australia, that is a changemaker in Australia and in the globe. I started working with them on the 14th of October, however in the past 23 years, I have worked with the profit organisation ANZ Bank and in the not for profit organisations such as Opportunity International Australia, Many Rivers Microfinance and Baptist World Aid Australia.

2. What are you working on at the moment?  

I am currently working on philanthropy and private funding for World Vision Australia.

3. What do you love about being a part of the Spacecubed community? 

I love being a part of the Spacecubed community full of innovators, entrepreneurs and changemakers.

4. Can you share with us one of your favourite success stories? 

One brief story is when I took a few entrepreneurs and directors of companies to India in 2008 to show them the country and its beauty and sadly the poverty they faced and how they could be a part of the solution and impact for a whole community and village. 

One entrepreneur as part of his giving journey after the trip to India and the poverty that he was exposed to decided that he would be a changemaker and gave a significant donation and that in return has made a huge impact in the lives of the poor and vulnerable people in urban India. The work is ongoing and is changing lives in that specific community and village.

5. What do you hope to achieve in 2019/2020?  

My hopes and dreams are to make a significant impact in the lives of the wealthy and the poor, by living my life with authentic love and serving people.
