Gus spent 10 years in breakfast radio on Triple M.

The Grill Team changed to Moon Man in the Morning in 2019.
Hosting the 2016 ABC series Man Up was pivotel for Gus. The series was an exploration of modern masculinity (which Gus views is toxic) and men’s mental health issues – challenging masculine stereotypes and getting men better connected and breaking the silence around suicide.
Following the enormous impact of Man Up, Gus founded Gotcha4Life with the mission to target Men’s Mental Health. Gotcha4Life today drives real change and funds educational workshops and innovative training programs throughout Australia that build mental fitness in all individuals, organisations and communities to activate strong, open and binding relationships.
He has been married for over 20 years to Vicky and has three teenage kids. Women want him to meet their mothers and blokes want to be him: Gus just wants to give them all a hug.
He was an enormously engaged ambassador for the 2018 Invictus Games and a proud ambassador for men’s clothing brand Johnny Bigg.
