My primary focus is on growing For Blue and WA’s Blue Economy. The work there includes being a ‘guide’ for the leaders of scale-up companies, building a new investment vehicle focused on ocean companies, and convening forums that bring together leaders from across WA’s marine industries. We are hosting the ‘State of the Blue Economy’ event in early December.
Physically I’m working week by week through a one-year body being course to improve my movement generally. I’m recovering from a C6/7 Distectomy and hoping to be back swimming in a few weeks and by March 2022 be ready to swim 25km to Rottnest.
I’m actively learning investing for my own business and to put my money into great projects being lead by other people. I recently invested in Tiller Rides and am completing the ‘Venture Deals’ course online. I’m also learning and practice Buddhism starting with ‘Meditation 101’ through the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition and the local Hayagriva Buddhist Centre.
