Goal setter, goal achiever, never tell me I can't do anything...father, husband, practising minimalist, values-oriented, quality over quantity, marathon runner, digital nomad, Kiwi wandering the world. I choose experiences over material items. I value my friendships and close family. When I travel, I travel light - only a carry on bag - even for long trips.
Networking helps me keep it real. Get lots of inspiration. Able to offer advice when I can.
