About Me

I was very fortunate growing up to be able to travel so much. My mum travelled pretty well all the time, and she would bring me to whatever country she was going to as frequently as she could. In adulthood, I have continued this passion for travel and have subsequently been to over 70 countries. This international experience has had a profound impact on who I am, and what I am interested in and have consequently experienced and seen many perspectives which I believes fortunately gives me a fairly unique perspective on things.

From this privilege, I have developed the following values that run central to everything I do:
-hard work
-discipline
-composure
-being understanding
-keeping an open mind

Whether it’s my involvement in the community, the entrepreneurial ventures I am working on, events I am attending or speaking at, or just walking through life, I always try to operate under these values.

Each chapter of my life has brought success, failures, mistakes, and lessons. This website, particularly the experiences section below, tries to tell my story and what I bring to the table.
