Founder, accountant and creator

Health, wealth, and happiness

I love building businesses.

The challenge of coming up with a strategy, executing consistently and then adjusting direction based on learnings along the way.

I’m on a mission to achieve Financial Independence for my family.

But I’m not willing to sacrifice health, happiness, or relationships on my path to get there.

Some of my favourite topics are:

  • Building remote teams
  • Web3 and crypto
  • Async communication
  • Marketing like a media company

In 2021 I moved from CEO of Bean Ninjas to a part-time advisor role.

This was a welcome change after 6.5 years at the helm.

In 2022 I’m taking some time out to learn and experiment with new ideas before starting my next business.

It is also a great opportunity to spend some more time with my young family and get out in the surf more regularly.
