About Me

IMG_0166

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. Here’s a little bit about me and why I do what I do…

I’m a husband and father of two, currently living in Adelaide, South Australia.

I had what many would consider an unorthodox upbringing as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and this introduction to life was the catalyst for my pursuit of freedom and purpose.

Being a quiet introvert, I spent most of my time as a teenager indulging in my passion for music, and playing the guitar and drums.

My professional career began in my early twenties as a self-employed guitar instructor.

At the age of 24, I trusted my intuition and took a bold step to leave the religion of Jehovah’s Witnesses and its rigid belief system, which meant that I was shunned by the majority of people that I grew up around, including my father.

Out of necessity, I then proceeded to rebuild my entire social network and foundational understanding of spirituality and of the world around me.

This was initially a very confusing and lonely time...

After meeting my future wife Elise, I began listening to audiobooks regularly on the topics of business, entrepreneurship and personal development.

In 2016, Elise and I welcomed our first son Blake into the world. This fundamentally changed the way I looked at life.

I realised that the typical “hustle” approach to success was going to leave me burnt out and regretting the time I was missing out on seeing Blake grow up.

Soon afterwards, I discovered an online business training program and community of digital entrepreneurs.

This transformational education and mentorship guided me through the process of starting my first online business, and ultimately creating a life of more freedom and flexibility.

In 2017 at a business workshop, I happened to meet "JJ" John Jackson - the founder of Pinpoint Your Purpose - and he helped me to identify my unique purpose in life…

My Purpose

"To give others the courage to clearly understand their unconditional worth, so that they can let go and confidently choose to create the best version of themselves."

Finally having this clarity and confidence transformed everything about my life and my way of being.

In late 2018, I sold my "bricks-and-mortar" guitar teaching business, and began working exclusively online, helping other aspiring digital entrepreneurs get started.

About a year later, Elise and I welcomed our second son Oaklen into the world.

In 2020, I began to learn directly from JJ and became an accredited Pinpoint Your Purpose facilitator. This is by far the most fulfilling work I've had the privilege of being engaged in.

In 2021, I set out to assist other former Jehovah's Witnesses with their transition out of the religion, and launched a YouTube channel and support community called Find The Missing Peace.

I'm extremely passionate about guiding individuals towards inner peace and purpose, regardless of their external circumstances, so that they can be empowered to live their best life.
