I was described by a teacher of mine as  'a basic individual, with little, if any God given talent'. And looking back, he was spot on. One thing I have come to realise over time is that I am absolutely not the sharpest tool in the shed (as anyone in my set 6 math class will tell you). I do however pride myself on being ferociously passionate, unreasonably optimistic and deeply curious.

I'm fascinated by the human condition. And love telling stories. I have long dreamt of forging my own path, building brands and having an impact. This website is, in a small way the bi-product of that vision. I create, manage and deliver content for a number of media outlets and global brands. 

I currently report for HODINKEE. Over the years I have been published in Fashion Beans, Bloomberg, Oracle Time, The Gentleman’s Journal, The Rake, Revolution, Monochrome Watches and Escapement.

What I Love: Life. One hellova a gift. I also enjoy ukuleles, a plump grape, cold showers, heavy barbells, the sun, cameras (specifically Leica), old pocket watches, vintage Swatch, Nordic design, voluntary suffering, cycling in the early morning, mushroom coffee, surfing, CrossFit (yup, I sometimes high five others after a workout with my shirt off), things made by hand, minimalism, discipline, stoic philosophy, inspirational leaders, rugby, meditation, acoustic music, motivational YouTube videos, beef wellington and meaningful conversation over dinner (these are also outlined on my Tinder dating profile).

What I Hate: Those who blame others and aren't grateful for what they have.

My Values: I prioritise health (both mental and physical). I have an obsession with curation and simplicity.  I always look to find joy in the mundane. No moaning. No Complaining. No finger pointing. Always striving for extreme ownership. 

My Greatest Fear: Not living an authetic life to me.

Favourite Quote: “Expect nothing, Balme nobody, do something”.

My View Of Success: Doing what you say you're going to do.
