Adventure / Yacht deliveries
From 2006 to 2009 I sailed across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans solo in a 26ft boat. This adventure was the subject of a feature length film called Between Home, made by German/Australian filmmaker Jack Rath. Other voyages & deliveries include a second doublehanded trans-Pacific, totaling 30,000+ nautical miles of sea time.
In 2014 I founded & produced The Privacy Workshop, Australia’s largest conference on digital privacy, held at Federation Square in Melbourne. I worked with key stakeholders and sought sponsorship and support from organisations including Google, Facebook, ThoughtWorks, GetUp!, SpiderOak and others.
I'm the co-founder of Serversaurus, a provider of mission-critical cloud & hosting infrastructure which services great organisations such as The Australian Ballet, The Heart Foundation, Film Victoria and many others.
I co-founded Electron Workshop, a coworking space based in North Melbourne which resides inside a 300sqm free-span warehouse we renovated over a 9 month period.
These businesses are certified B Corps which also donate 1% of their turnover to environmental charity.
Product design / Making
I also enjoy making and product design through Kohutt™, an accessory and carry label I started in 2015. Kohutt™ products are designed & hand made in Australia using premium locally sourced materials.
