A bit about me & a bit about you
For as long as I can remember, I've always loved nature and adventure. My earliest memories are losing myself outside, climbing trees, swimming in the ocean and going on crazy adventures.
I was always a dreamer. I would dream of exploring the world. Being a bold pioneer… Even a pirate (If anyone can help me with this, please let me know).
I had a deep love for the ocean. There was just something about it. The roar of the waves, the light pierce through the water - it would fill me with a sense of wonder and amazement I couldn’t find anywhere else.
I loved surfing and my curious nature lead me to wonder how surfboards are made, before I created my very own surfboard in 2012, at age 18. I put a funky little logo on it and called it, “Monsta Surfboards”.
I began dreaming of turning this little hobby of mine into a thriving brand that would inspire people to live with the same spirit of adventure that I loved.
In 2013, monstasurf.com went live with my small range of backyard crafted surfboards and apparel. I quit my job working in after school care and began living the crazy and unpredictable life of an entrepreneur. Which is where I still am now, my heart bursting with passion for the adventure ahead.
It’s been a crazy 6 years. And it it definitely hasn't been easy. It has been a wild adventure. Constantly walking in faith, just putting one foot in front of the other. Like walking in a thick fog. I’ve always known the direction we want to go but there’s never been a clear path.
Thankfully, I’ve been graced to have some pretty incredible moments of bursting passion and deep purpose which has sustained me along the journey.
And it's made me come to realise this:
"Life is the greatest adventure of all. And each and everyone of us has an invitation to choose a life of GREAT adventure every morning we wake up."
From the non-stop frenzy of chasing my dreams with our team at Monsta Surf, to helping people around the world through our Foundation, to creating inspiring imagery and content with my team, to dropping out of university to go all in on my vision, to sharing my story in many different forums to thousands and thousands of people, to moving away from the city to the beach and meeting the woman of my dreams and marrying her under a year later (what a pirate!)… I’m undeniable proof that traditional rules were made to be broken…
Which brings me to you
Ultimately, I’m here for you.
To help you step out of what is known and into the unique adventure you were born to enjoy.
I’m still navigating through the challenges of my own path and I definitely don’t have all the answers. I make mistakes, I have bad days, I get stared in the face by fear and insecurity everyday, just like you.
But my commitment to you is to bring you the very best of what I’m living and learning. It won’t be perfect, but you can expect thoughts and ideas I’m learning to help you on your journey.
And lastly, could you do me favour?
Chase after the things that fill you with a sense of passion and purpose… And encourage those around you to do the same. Because I believe making our outside world a better place all starts with our inner world.
I hope that this is just the beginning of our relationship and I would love to hear more about you. The best way to stay connected with me is via my social channels. Or you can say hi here.
