Values & Passions

"To be the coach I wished he had when I was younger."

I am the loving husband to Kate, and together we have raised 5 wonderful children who have brought a rich neurodiversity to family life.

I am inspired and at peace in nature, wherever there is a distant horizon - whether that is out wild camping and hiking, or out on the ocean in his beloved sailing boat as an RYA YachtMaster.

I camp and sail all year round and embrace with equal measure the tranquillity and adversity the seasons bring, both ashore and afloat.

I am passionate about helping people discover and harness their own authentic power to design what they truly wish in this wonderful world and to show up as the loving next best version of themselves.
