About Me

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. I'm an enthusiastic but mediocre runner, and tennis player, who loves sport, and writing, and music.

At critical moments in time, you can raise the aspirations of other people significantly, especially when they are relatively young, simply by suggesting they do something better or more ambitious than what they might have in mind.
