Previously Butch acted as the State Manager in leaving care for the renowned Lifestyle Solutions, ensuring the swift but delicate transition from in-care, to independent living for individuals. A process which can be incredibly difficult, but also fundamentally important because it provides confidence and support in progressing to independent living.

During his time with Life Without Barriers, he was the Primary Director for Promotions and Fundraising, helping establish the necessary relations between the business and the community, while assuring the company’s growth and its industry security.
He was also the acting CEO of Great Mates, a specialised individual disability support provider which prioritises building life skills, learning and employment opportunities, and helping to provide living options to those in dire situations.
