Engineer, founder, and investor. Live and work between Australia and the US (California - SF Bay Area). Ex-Sensity Systems (Verizon Acquired), Ex-Skylo (SoftBank Series B - $100M). MP @ Metagrove Ventures. I also write at The Infinite (Personal NL) and on MG's Blog.



I've been fortunate to wear many hats throughout my career; technology, partnerships, product, operations, strategy, etc. I usually take a bottoms-up approach and evaluate a company on each level with a fine-tooth comb.


I'm a big advocate of transparency. This means I provide honest feedback via my deal memos to the founders so they can improve their gaps and weaknesses.


How I can help:

  • Introductions to my personal network (those who can value-add), mainly across ANZ and the US
  • Advisory and help on technology, leadership, hiring, global expansion, operations, product, and strategy
  • Partnerships
  • Fundraising



  • SpaceX / USA
  • Fathom / USA / JCal's LAUNCH Accelerator
  • Thyrft / USA / Y-Combinator W21
  • BusinessOnBot / INDIA / Y-Combinator W21
  • LifeComp / SWEDEN
  • Unhedged / AUSTRALIA
  • StoryTiling / AUSTRALIA
  • WeFunder / USA
  • Vampr / USA

My deal flow comes in from different networks i.e. accelerators, top-tier universities, incubators, friends, and fellow investors/VCs.
