His caring nature and desire to help the disadvantaged led to a career as a personal carer of elderly Greek Australians.
He became known for his calming personality and deep attention to the care of the frail residents.
He learned conversational Greek to help him communicate better with the elderly and to ensure that they were understood and their needs were met. His exemplary approach has been an example his fellow carers follow.
Tut was a state finalist for the LASA Excellence in Aged Care Awards 2019, and also received the Outstanding Contribution Award at the 2018 Fronditha Care Staff Awards. His nomination was also special as it was submitted from the family members of the elderly residents he cares for.
Tut leads by example and through his care for the elderly has broken down many entrenched prejudices in the community towards South Sudanese refugees.
