Robby is a former super-heavy weight world champion fighter who reconnected with his passion for art within his 4-year prison sentence for drug trafficking.
Robby is a symbol of strength and hope to many inmates due to his success as an artist/singer/songwriter and his unrelenting dedication to culture, community and family.
Within his own community, Robby continues to emerge as a leader through his work at First Peoples of the Millewa Mallee, where he is developing many initiatives centered around cultural rehabilitation for Indigenous offenders.
Earlier this year, Robby made global head-lines and coined the now famous #toostrongforyoukaren hash tag after an incident with a neighbour went viral.
