I’m a Partner at Blackbird, and I run our Investment Team, and our Melbourne office.The best part of what I do is seeing other people become their best selves, and I spend most of my work hours trying help people do that.I have two legend sons (6&2), and a legend wife who is a haematologist and I dedicate every moment I'm not working to them.
