Kel served with the Australian Army for 20 years, retiring in 1992 as a Major. In that year he joined the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations as an international civilian, serving in Cambodia, Rwanda, Yugoslavia, East Timor and Sudan.
These UN operations exposed him to personal hardships and extraordinary challenges which went a long way towards establishing his views on refugees, humanitarism and global citizenship. During these missions he participated in tasks and operations which allowed him to experience and see first-hand the value of the United Nations on a global level.
As a result of his service with the United Nations he was awarded the Australian Overseas Humanitarian Medal from the Australian government. He retired in 2006 and returned to Sydney to live. In 2010 he joined the United Nations Association of Australia (NSW) and then served as President from 2013-2016. He now holds the position of Immediate President of the UNAA (NSW).
