About me & my work:

I'm fostering a varied career, with speaking engagements (mindfulness & resilience), consultancies (business development and hospitality), making music, and study. I'm seeking new opportunities. Fascinated by the frontiers humankind is broaching. People are at turns amazing, beautiful and oblivious.

I serve on the board of directors of "RU OK?", which was founded by my brother Gavin. Aimed at reducing suicide and depression. Working in the NFP space has been gratifying and inspiring.

I've lead a a varied life and worked in many industries. A long career in the music biz, releasing many albums (including a Gold Record) and playing countless gigs with a team of alt funk/soul alchemist freaks called Skunkhour. I later composed music for the Sydney Theatre Company, and Belvoir St theatre, where i also appeared as a very average actor.

I shifted to Los Angeles for a much needed change up. 7 years worth in the end. Performing, and writing, and cajoling, in music, while working as a Producer in the TV/Photo industry. In the States i met my wife, and we started a family.

Upon returning to Sydney i embarked on a hospitality venture in Bondi. A big bar/restaurant which stumbled then roared.

I established and continue to oversee the Australian branch of the US Previz company, Proof Inc.

I wrestle with my bad habits, attempt to better myself and look to be effective in a range of ways. Life is an incredible thing.
