“I have presented live TV with huge audiences and spoken in many environments, from the corporate world to my recovery community – board rooms to prisons. I love to start conversations. I am not really an expert in anything except my own experience.
As a former professional ice hockey player, I know what it’s like to belong to a community of teammates and to have a sense of connection and accountability to others.
When I stopped playing sports, things took a turn. Working in the fast pace world of broadcasting and advertising I found himself in a position of using substances to help cope with life challenges. Along with this, I struggled with depression, loneliness and anxiety for much of my life.
Through my journey of recovery, I realised the importance of connection and community. That showing up for others and having people show up for you is a fundamental in creating change. As a result of becoming part of a 12 step program, I have been free from the constraints of alcohol and drug use since May 2016.
I am passionate about helping people to challenge old ideas of masculinity in order to become more compassionate to ourselves and others.
I offer a comfortable, honest and relaxed environment for people to engage in safe conversations without judgement. I believe that creating a game plan of action allows positive change to take place in any aspect of someone’s life.”
