Fisher came from a good Jewish home but his life went topsy turvy and he spent years in jail. He is today the general manager of Our Big Kitchen.

Greg Fisher: ‘When I was a kid my mum used to say I’d either be very successful or end up in jail’.

As it transpired, Greg Fisher did both and Inside Out is his extraordinary story of ambition, addiction and the long road to redemption.

After a comfortable upbringing in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, Greg Fisher did what he thought a good Jewish boy should do. He married, had a child and started making his way up the corporate ladder. But after coming out and leaving his wife, Greg’s life veered into the fast lane.

A-list parties and a growing business empire proved a heady mix, and by the early 2000s his high-stakes lifestyle began to spiral dangerously out of control. Eventually jailed for corporate fraud and drug dealing, Greg spent almost eight years in prison, sharing a cell with some of Australia’s most notorious criminals – and began the slow process of rebuilding his life.

With his parole over in mid 2015, Greg is now general manager of Our Big Kitchen, a successful community kitchen.

The Hon Michael Kirby will launch Inside Out on Monday 10 August.
