He brings with him a wealth of experience and is determined to use his skills in youth ministry on a larger scale in the Sydney region as part of the Archdiocese’s rejuvenation to make Sydney Catholic Youth transformational for youth in this country with a balance of social justice, service to the community, and outreach to people in trouble while not undermining the faith.

He has mentored and formed high school and University student leaders as well as creating pathways for young people to connect with their local parish.
