Educator – Speaker – Coach – Counsellor – Author - Parent

I have worked in education for over twenty years, including primary school children and adult education. I have a focus on wellbeing, and social and emotional learning. I am currently the Mental Health and Wellbeing Leader at a primary school on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria, Australia.

I run workshops and webinars for parents and educators focusing on building connected relationships to help children achieve their best; academically, socially, and emotionally. I have spoken at international conferences on these topics. I also coach and mentor children, educators, parents, and organisations.

Connecting with your Kids is my first book, written for parents, and I have just finished writing Connecting with your Teens. I am currently writing Quality Relationships Matter with John Hendry OAM. 

Most importantly, I am a parent with my wife Sandi, with three amazing kids: Daisy, Finn, and Monty. It is here in my family where I have learnt the importance of having strong, connected, and nurturing relationships.

“There is nothing more satisfying for me than to work with people. I love connecting with people of all ages, from different backgrounds, countries & cultures, and from all walks of life.”
