Raised an Anglican, I have worked for over 20 years with Initiatives of Change, a multi-faith, multicultural international not-for-profit organisation which works from a spiritual basis to build trust across the world's divides. In the 1990s I worked on programmes in former Communist Europe to train young leaders in the importance of trust-building as a part of nation-building. During that time I gained a deep appreciation of Orthodox Christian and Jewish spirituality.
In 2002 I moved with my family to Melbourne, Australia.
