Jonny brings experience as a volunteer Youth Worker and has been involved with Hope Youth for many years after initially meeting some of the Hornby 24-7 youth workers as a teenager. Since then, Jonny has come to appreciate the enormous positive influence youth work has on the community and beyond, both as a young person and as a volunteer youth leader.  He is enthusiastic about building his governance skills while supporting youth to serve their communities.

Outside of his role as a trustee, Jonny has earned a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting and a Bachelor of Laws (Honours).  He now works as a tax accountant, and in his spare time, you'll find him following rugby, running the streets of Christchurch or experimenting in the kitchen.
