Full bio

I have one focus in my life right now which is 7write. I am so focused on this task I moved to Amsterdam from Sydney in Feb 2013 to build the business, only going back for a few weeks earlier this year. I get a kick out of start ups because I love adventure and success. People around me describe my personality as a tough teddy bear. I love sport, especially bike riding.
