Bio

I've built a successful life while battling bipolar 1.

So I know what it’s like to be driven by anxieties so strong I sacrificed weekend after weekend to needless work. To be so sleep deprived my keyboard sometimes resembled a soft pillow. And to perform brilliantly in a boardroom one minute, only to find myself crying quietly in toilet cubicle the next.

That said, I also know what it's like to live a happy, 'normal' life with a wonderful wife of 35-years, two beautiful adult daughters and a dog named Mac.

Consequently, I think I deliver a course experience that comes as much from lived experience as it does from a textbook.

I’m also a keynote speaker for the Black Dog Institute, serve on a mental health action group for the Australian insurer TAL, and have been interviewed by the Australian Financial Review and the ABC as well as appearing on the SBS show Insight.
