Chris graduated from USC in 2009 with an Arts/Business degree. He was working in an advertising agency when he decided to stop drinking alcohol for 12 months, and to document his experience on social media.
His goal was to get a true understanding of what it would take for a young person to change their drinking behaviour. That social experiment is now an international movement known as Hello Sunday Morning, with 100,000 members and 2.1 million stories of positive change.
The largest online community of its kind, Hello Sunday Morning has received more than $1 million in funding and recently launched a coaching and community support app, Daybreak, designed to help even more people harness the power of technology to build healthier relationships with alcohol.
Chris is a member of USC's Queensland Mind and Neuroscience Institute Foundation Board. He was Queensland's 2012 Young Australian of the Year and is a 2017 Westpac Social Change Fellow.
He recently completed an MBA from Oxford University, where he received one of only five £50,000 Skoll Scholarships awarded to social entrepreneurs around the world.
