His passion is for using the power of sport to inspire positive change and achievement, and his first-hand experience working within the criminal justice system led him to develop an initiative that provides sports activity programs to young offenders.

Working with national partners in criminal justice, sport, academia, government, and others, their mission is to build a better and safer society through the use of sport and physical activity in the Criminal Justice System by actively helping the sector in their efforts to reduce violence, crime and reoffending.
