After seeing first-hand, the impact service can have on individuals, including himself, he pursued a career in psychology.

In 2017 Chris left headspace and joined Mates4Mates which is a charity supporting current and ex-serving members of the Australia Defence Force. Veteran issues are closely aligned with those experienced by first responders. With a focus on the treatment of PTSD and complex trauma, anxiety and depression, Chris is a strong advocate of using exercise and mindfulness to assist with managing mental health issues.
Chris embodies the research that links cardiovascular and strength training, with improving mental health issues, by working out at the gym and being an advocate for utilising exercise and mindfulness to improve mental well-being. Chris is passionate about being a spokesperson on the changing culture of mental health and reducing the stigma that surrounds it. When Chris is not working or in the gym, he is spending time with his two cute kids (aged 8 and 10), spending time at the beach and at kids sport.
