With over twenty years of product, digital marketing, and eCommerce experience, my passions for operational delivery and strategic execution run deep. I believe deeply in the power of behavioural analysis and insight-driven problem-solving. I deliver results powered by experience, data and technology.
Further passions are fed by a love of engineering, design, and communication - all helping me provide engagement, collaboration, and leadership.
I live in Sydney, Australia, with my wife, our two teenage kids, and our beloved Spoodle.
I have had the great pleasure of working alongside incredibly talented people during my career. Many are lifelong friends whose perspectives and experiences are priceless waypoints on my own journey.
In 2015 I grabbed the opportunity to start a business from nothing. Using twenty-five years of experience and skills, my goal was to grow the idea into a flourishing venture for the team and our investors.
That company was Contact Light, and I'm very proud of the products we launched - Embark and Nearcast. They were fresh and innovative - built with passion and grit by a very talented team.
Contact Light may not have been the success we hoped for, but it was a collection of experiences and valuable lessons learned.
I have made my own experiences and time available to several start-ups tackling real-world problems and exciting opportunities for large addressable markets.
