I've spent the last few months working and traveling Europe (I'm in Barcelona currently) and prior to that I spent the last half of 2022 working and traveling QLD with my family (I'm dad to a 6 and 8 year old) in a caravan. When not traveling we live just north of Byron Bay in the beautiful Northern Rivers region of NSW, Australia. Bundjalung and Yugambeh country. My kids are unschooled and I co-parent with their mum Sandra so they are part of our everyday lives in between work and everything else we do.

Over the last few years as I've delivered projects for many of my NFP, Social Enterprises and B Corp clients I've been working on balancing my need to work with the life I want to live. Experimenting with how to bring together purpose driven clients with values aligned digital professionals in formats that feel less like a freelance/agency relationship and more like a cooperative.
While I don’t want to “freelance” forever, I don’t want to create just another digital agency, or necessarily build a product business (unless it’s the right thing).
I do want to build fulfilling relationships with humans doing their best work on projects that really matter.
If you're one of those people, let's chat. And if you're a UX/UI Designer, Developer, Software Engineer, Technologists, [insert related profession here] I'd love to speak to you about getting together intentionally as a community within the for purpose space.
When I'm not building websites or providing technical leadership and digital strategy you'll find me off-grid and as far away from screens and signals as my barefeet will take me and my kids.
Somewhere in between you'll find me daydreaming about alternative learning models and exploring how learning takes place outside of traditional educational institutions and how we might make that more sustainable for all involved.
