“Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.”

Japanese proverb
Who am I?

Who am I?

I lived in Cambodia for 5 years, where I founded OIC Cambodia. Now back in Australia, I'm co-founding Umbo. I have a BA in Physiotherapy and an MA in Development Studies from the University of NSW. In a previous life, I volunteered in a centre for people with disabilities in Vietnam, interned in India, studied Mandarin in Beijing, and milked yaks in Mongolia. I'm an obsessed barefoot runner and connoisseur of durian.

What I'm working on

I'm a co-founder of Umbo, an initiative to improve access to services for children in rural and remote communities. We're an online platform that connects them to allied health professionals for online therapy sessions, using proprietary video software.

I'm the founder of OIC Cambodia, established for the 600,000 Cambodians with communication and swallowing disabilities. We establish speech therapy university courses and jobs for Cambodians, raise awareness, and influence government policy.

I'm a co-founder of WhyDev, an initiative dedicated to getting development right. We provide professional, educational, and support services to individuals, communities and organisations committed to global development. I now sit on WhyDev's board.
