Entrepreneur and Visionary


I am passionate about developing, discovering, enhancing and enjoying. I am an Entrepreneur and a Visionary who started and grew several businesses before the age of 35.

I am a person who loves teaching and gaining knowledge. It is said that no matter how much you learn, there will be always something that is missing so my motto is to make the best of my time in this world learning new and unknown.

Abraham Lincoln said that "If I had 8 hours to chop a tree, I will spend 6 hours sharpening my axe."

I strongly believe that it is the responsibility of the elders to mentor those that are starting out.


I have three businesses that I run passionately with my wife. I love to share my experience of my businesses with the world. We have three thriving businesses of Engineering, Photography and Printing.

I am a professional engineer and a photographer. I run my consultancy business in the Field of Engineering and we have a Franchisee business in Photography where we help people setup their Photography business in Australia. The printing business is a recent addition to the two and it grew out of passion for Photography. I love taking photos and I love presenting them in beautiful printed products to my customers.

I believe that once you have set your dreams nothing is impossible and that is what I share with everyone.

I have over 13 years experience in the field of Coaching people and Engineering.
