I’m a multi-time founder of kids (two boys) and a multi-time founder of companies. I was fortunate to play a role helping to scale Airbnb in its earlier days and contributed to the AI revolution at my most recent company. I currently spend my time coaching and advising other founders and their teams on how to build great, lasting businesses that people love working for.
When life threw me a curveball in 2019 I knew I needed a radical shift in my relationship with work. I went deep on productivity, mindfulness, neuroscience and behavioural psychology. Through a lot of personal experimentation I found a way to get balance back into my life without sacrificing my impact at work.
My mission is to help people find ways to enjoy doing hard things in their own lives and my hope is that by distilling down years of trial and error into specific, actionable lessons you’ll be able to get more balance back into your own life while still having a big impact at work as well.
