Back to home

I was born and raised in New Zealand.

I spent my childhood playing football every chance I could, reading Harry Potter, and living in blissful ignorance of just how lucky I was to grow up in Aotearoa.

During high school, I put my head down and worked my butt off, getting swept up in the competitiveness of a traditional all-boys school. I did well, won some awards, and felt totally disenfranchised by traditional education.

So, I dropped out of my full four-year scholarship at University of Sydney, and joined Minerva “an innovative undergraduate program that combines four years of world travel with rigorous, interdisciplinary study“.

Suddenly, I was in the “real” world. Outside of my New Zealand bubble.

I’ve spent the last three years moving my entire life every four months, living in Hyderabad, Seoul, and Buenos Aires.

In all of that movement and restlessness, I’ve been grounded by an increasingly clear vision for what I want to do with my life.

In my tiny snapshot of the world, I’ve seen the power of multi-disciplinary problem solving. The innovation that comes from putting a software engineer, a designer, and a historian in the same room. I want to spend the rest of my life problem solving by bringing people together.
