His experience includes system and service development, funding, governance and commissioning reform, child and youth mental health, alcohol-and-other-drug (AOD) services, and rural and remote healthcare. Edward is known for well-considered advice and professional empathy and has led consultations in Aboriginal communities and with consumers, families, and carers with experience of complex mental health and AOD issues.
Edward’s professional background is in the legal and not-for-profit sector, where he worked in an advocacy and reform role, before joining a global energy and resources giant in a commercial role. He then felt compelled to seek out more community-focused, purpose-driven work at Nous.
Outside of work, Edward is the Board Chair of the Consumer Credit Legal Service, a not-for-profit community legal centre that provides financial rights and consumer law advice to vulnerable people across WA, and advocates to state and federal regulators on behalf of WA consumers.
Edward holds a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Economics from the University of WA. He is also an Associate Member of the Institute of Community Directors Australia.
Edward does not shy away from all-encompassing but short-lived hobbies. His love for cooking and coffee, weekly trips to Bunnings, and anxious attachment to the Philadelphia 76ers have endured.
