Personal and Business profile

I am the CEO and Founder of Phynix Initiative, a company based in Canberra, Australia that is dedicated to raising mental wellbeing around the world. This is done through Mental Health training and coaching in First Aid, Resilience and Recovery.

I am an author, international speaker and Master Instructor of Mental Health First Aid. I am also the Chief of the ACT Chapter of Speakers Tribe.

I have spoken at a number of Australian and international conferences and event and I have trained hundreds of people, across multiple industries throughout Australia. I am obsessed with preventing people who are experiencing poor mental health from ending up in mental health crisis.

After living through traumatic experiences, I figuratively set myself on fire and started my rebirth, rising from the ashes of my former life. I live and breathe the principles of the PHYNIX - Passionate, Hope-Full, Young At Heart, Noetic, Indomitable and Xtraordinary - so you can learn how to survive the game of life.

I have reinforced my lived experience with extensive studies in mental health practice and I incorporate my love of playing the ukulele, drums and all things mystical to promote social and emotional development.

I have seen the future of mental health. I am dedicated to helping individuals and organisations overcome and evolve through adversity to build a culture of community, connection, and mental well-being
