– an enthusiastic young leader in the shipping container logistics industry, a mostly unseen effort which touches everyone’s lives through social, trade and economic impacts.
It’s truly fascinating, however, I have many interests and aspirations beyond corrugated steel boxes and I’d love to share some of my thoughts and ideas with you.
I hope you enjoy my content on business, personal development, productivity, wellness, the future of work and other topics I find value in.
The future of maritime and logistics
Logistics affects everyone without discrimination.
The business arena is changing, requiring leaders who are aware and understanding of the challenges with social, economic and environmental disruption.

My personal time is largely spent continuously learning. Studying part-time towards a Bachelor of Business degree majoring in maritime and logistics management.
I pursue other self-development activities such as online tutorials, short courses, reading articles, listening to podcasts and audio books, and creating this personal website.
To perform at my best, I value maintaining my mental and physical wellbeing through a mix of yoga, gym, walking and spending time outdoors. I like to stimulate my mind and creativity through diverse experiences.
I maintain my health through regular exercise, chiropractic, remedial massage and an ergonomic sit-stand desk regime. I also enjoy exploring cities, coffee, cooking, and the odd Netflix binge to disconnect.
