As Content Lead, it’s Oli’s job to amplify the voice of our amazing network of 2500+ young leaders and spread the word on all the rad things they’re accomplishing (no small task, they’re accomplishing a lot!). Oli also handles anything and everything SOCIAL MEDIA! That means: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, MySpace, Friendster, Google Plus, Digg, etc.

Oli has a Bachelor of Writing from the University of Canberra (yes, that’s a real degree you can take and it’s awesome). Thank goodness it was a real degree because it’s led Oli on a wild adventure to Canada and in turn to Jack.org. Jack.org is such a warm and inviting place to be (the polar opposite of the ridiculous Canadian winters, pun intended), and he couldn’t be happier here.

When he’s not working, Oli enjoys lounging, listening to an almost inappropriate amount of music, and pretending to be having the worst time as his girlfriend “forces” him to watch Grey’s Anatomy. Oli also loves to read and write (you know, the basics).

My mental health revolution looks like overthrowing the dated notion that admitting to mental health concerns = weakness. In reality, it's the opposite of that - talking about your own mental health takes guts, but it shouldn't have to. I want to live in a world where therapy sessions are just as accepted as eye exams, because why the hell not?
