About Me

I built industrial projects in the Middle East before returning to NZ to help launch Uber. Since I left in 2018, I've been an angel investor in 40+ climatetech and web3 companies, and built up the Micromobility Podcast and Conference to be the premier global content platform for lightweight electric vehicles. I love spending time with family, mountain biking and volunteering with men to help them/me be more authentic and connected.

What do you do at Blackbird?

I invest in Kiwi founders who want to build world-changing companies from Aotearoa.

What did you do before Blackbird?

Angel investor/advisor to climatetech companies and podcast/conference host for Micromobility Industries.

What do you believe that others do not?

The world has never been this good. Yes, we have problems, but we've never fed, clothed or housed as many as we do now, and tech is making it easier than ever to access opportunities.

What ideas are you excited by right now?

Climate tech (both hardware and software), Applied web3, modern manufacturing
