He has worked for thirty years as an environmental and cross-cultural educator and manager in Aboriginal affairs and community organisations across urban, regional and remote Australia.

He currently works part-time with Minyumai Indigenous Protected Area on culturally informed threatened species protection and the important cultural and ecological role of Ngugum (dingo) where they are an active member of the national campaign promoting the First Nations Dingo Declaration and non-lethal management of dingoes.
