I have travelled the road less traveled, the road well travelled, and a lot of whacky paths in between.
One of those greatest path started with my first personal development course and seminar back in 1999, which caused me to delve into the exciting world of personal development, where I develop an insatiable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, along with physical mind-body practices like yoga.
As an Australian Army Major at the age of 29, I decided at one point that the box I had learned awesome skills in was just not big enough so I resigned, skipped countries, and took up a role as a Consultant to the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympic Games. My leap of faith lead to five amazing years of consulting to mega sporting events all across the world.
But it was in 2007, where I finally found the courage to leave my cushy Consulting work to take up my true passion of helping people find their inner happiness and vitality. It was time to set up my international Coaching practice, based out of Bali.
Fast forward a few years and I have now coached CEO’s, elite athletes, world record holders, actors, UN workers, business owners, entrepreneurs and everything in between. I have also presented seminars and workshops to companies like Chevron, Aspire Zone and the SWIRE Group. Plus run MindBody Detox Retreats in places like Mallorca and now authored two books (The Guidebook to Happiness and The Guidebook to Optimum Health), which I am very proud of. I also offer a couple of Coach Apprenticeships each year to the right aspiring Coaches.
In the end, I just love seeing people tap into (a lot) more of the potential I know they all have. With 20 years of strategic planning skills, plus skills as a NLP master practitioner, reiki master, personal fitness trainer, hypnotherapist, and Coach, I am fascinated to find the little things that people can start doing or stop doing, that provide them with the highest happiness ROI (return on investment).
I also have now become a co-owner in an amazing new yoga centre in Canggu, Bali called The Practice, which is also about the practice of yoga, on and off the mat. So if you are in Bali, or planning on a trip to Bali, make sure you drop in and say hi and check out one of my many offerings there.
