Life Enthusiast

I trained as a teacher, spent 5 years in media and marketing, quit my job sold everything and moved to Greece. I ran out of money, sailed across the Atlantic, got arrested in the Caribbean then spent two years sailing around the world. I've broken both my kneecaps, ended up in a wheelchair, battled depression and ran a Marathon. I’ve organised two Guinness world records, saved a life and rode a rickshaw across India raising $85,000 for charity.

I have a passion for business, a beautiful wife, and a mission to empower others.

I’m an Adventurer, an Optimist, and a Storyteller.
