Over the last decade, he has worked with stakeholders from the social and private sector, raising funds for local charities and putting together meaningful events

He volunteers with the charity Resilience Collective and believes that beyond the label, persons with mental health, especially those in recovery, should be supported in their journey back in society holistically.
