Charles has been engaged as a Maven Adviser since March 2020. Since then, he has facilitated training, contributed to Maven strategy and helped to develop Maven’s virtual agent, May.
Charles specialises in disability training and awareness, accessibility reviews and community consultations and is enthusiastic about making a difference to workplaces and organisations around Australia.
Charles has lived with a disability for more than 10 years after a motorbike accident in 2010 left him a quadriplegic. Having experienced life as disabled and non-disabled, Charles is able to bring a unique perspective to the Maven team and in his advice to clients.
Outside of Maven, Charles holds a Bachelor of Journalism and works at the ABC as a digital producer. He is passionate about educating and creating awareness about disability, in particular spinal cord injuries. He recently raised more than $140,000 for research into spinal cord injuries.
Away from work, Charles competes in handcycling and recently won two gold medals at the Road Racing National Championships.
