Crossing the Tasman from his hometown of Sydney, Australia; Rhys has returned to New Zealand after previously residing and working in Queenstown as a youth worker from 2013-15. Rhys has now taken on the Manager and Lead Youth Worker role with Cromwell Youth Trust.

Rhys has been travelling and working worldwide as a youth worker since 2012. Rhys has had the privilege of working in Australia and Canada as an Out of Home Care Residential Worker for foster youth. During his time in the USA Rhys worked at a summer camp as a Head Counsellor for a number of years. Additionally, Rhys has volunteered his time for many non-profit youth services mentoring and supporting youth.

Throughout Rhys' time exploring the world he has had the opportunity to experience some incredible adventures, including, solo skydiving, scuba diving, trekking through the Canadian wilderness for two weeks, mingling with the likes of Tony Hawk and Johnny Knoxville in Los Angeles, and eating fried crickets in Mexico!

Rhys has come to Cromwell with a mission; and that is to reinvigorate the community to be apart of an amazing youth service that Rhys aims on becoming the centrepiece and inspiration for other youth services in New Zealand. If you see Rhys around please say Kia Ora - except if the All Blacks beat the Wallabies (which is in the higher percentage range of happening)
