Raised on welfare in a Greek migrant family, Arthur excelled at school. A popular student successful athlete, school captain and dux of his final year, Arthur’s future looked promising. However, a few years into an Arts/Law degree his life was a mess, landing in prison via a drug-rehabilitation clinic.
Since his release from prison, Arthur has been a cabbie, run men’s groups, worked with at-risk youth and prisoners, spoken internationally, and featured in the general media. A consultant criminologist, speaker, writer, and actor, Arthur is currently writing several books.
A Melbourne University graduate (MA Criminology) and Winston Churchill Memorial Fellow, Arthur’s favourite pastime is to watch his two sons play AFL football.
