What do you do at Blackbird?

My mission is to find and work alongside the most ambitious founders that endeavour to revolutionise the way people live their life.

What did you do before Blackbird?

My first job was a deckhand onboard a superyacht in Sydney. I studied Law & Commerce on the Gold Coast and fell in love with the startup world. I have since worked as an associate at Sprint Ventures, a Brisbane based venture fund.

What do you believe that others do not?

An unconstrained ambition that is centralised in areas that are contrarian > everything. This mindset is the catalyst for technological advancement.

What ideas are you excited by right now?

The AU/NZ ecosystem is booming right now - there is so much to be excited about! I love software, especially in categories that are yet to be labelled. No river of inquiry is too obscure. I am a massive believer in the intersection of ecommerce and fintech, as well as healthcare, water, automation and the future of work.
