Community + Empowerment + Projects = Close To My Heart

Feeling grateful is one thing. Finding joy in contributing back to your community … well that takes gratitude to a completely higher level.

One of the best things about a living, breathing community is creative thinking. Then to take a chance and use that creativity to give back to the people and the land. Now, that’s a dream come true.

My involvement has taken me on a great journey.  Gallery exhibitions, theatrical performance and active board engagement in the not for profit sector.

Projects that existed in my dreams as a child.

I feel very fortunate to have worked with talented, like minded individuals, in the youth and mental health space. With projects focused on recovery and understanding, backed by science and deep thought.

One day, I hope to work in this space with our returned service men and women. For me, it would be a great honour and privilege. And one way to say ‘Thank you.’

Education, culture, creativity and mentoring are key heart projects.

What are heart projects? They’re the ones that get you right there. In your gut. In your heart. And, in your mind.

Not solely ruled by emotion. They’re the one’s you give a #*%$ about.

Here are some projects I’ve had the pleasure of working on during the last few years.
