Favourite Quote?

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labour and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does.

The Order of Time by Carlo Ravelli

What’s the first job you’ve ever had, and what did you learn from it?

Collecting horse manure from paddocks as a kid. I learned that a little bit of hustle is the best way to earn a chocolate milkshake.

What would be your alternative career?

Physicist - my parents tell me I was born asking the question ‘why’. I can’t think of a better job than asking why of the whole universe.
