About Me
Recently I have returned to the San Francisco Bay Area as a co-founder for another exciting tech startup! My wife and son will join me here in the spring. This will be their first time living in North America. I have lived in Australia, Canada, Europe and mostly west coast of the US. Our home in Australia is a completely amazing relaxing spot in a prime location above some of the best beaches in New South Wales. The back of the house looks out over lush bushland reserve and the front provides a sweeping 180 panoramic of the broken bay region of the central coast. Perfect spot to reset recharge and get that next book or screenplay written. Or just relax with or without kids in what is considered the weekend beach playground area for Sydney siders! Conveniently close to the Hunter Valley wine region as well!
