Wayne is a Noongar man from the Great Southern area and grew up in Katanning. His Dad was a white Australian farmer who met his Mum when she was living on the Carollup Native Reserve. His grandparents come from Goren country near Bremer Bay and Wudjarri country. He has lived all of his adult life in Perth, with his wife, children and now grandchildren.

He has been working in the Aboriginal Sector for over 25 years, an area that he is passionate about, and feels that his work experience adds value to the great work currently undertaken by Yorgum.

Wayne is committed to being a part of a proactive team that provides support and programs developed by and for Aboriginal people, to assist in improving the health, wealth and wellbeing of the Aboriginal community.
