Biography

Growing up in rural Queensland 600km west of Brisbane, my journey to date has been shaped by curiosity and community. In that spirit, I have a strong interest and spend most of my time in the Australian startup/tech ecosystem. Currently, I'm studying a Bachelor of Advanced Finance and Economics (Honours) at The University of Queensland. Bringing all that together, I'm really excited about making a career in redefining how our country produces, consumes and thinks about food through agricultural technology. Whether that be through founding/operating companies or backing the people who are changing the world, as a venture capitalist. My generation is tasked with solving some huge global problems in this space, and Australian agriculture has a tremendous part to play.

Outside of this, I quite enjoy reading, mediation, yoga and playing basketball, although my jump shot may also need redefining!
