Born and raised in outback Australia, I’m proud to have turned my dream and passion for helping others into a socially conscious company that has impacted many lives across the globe.

Our mission at The Thriving Collective is to connect, inspire and change the world, and I created #dreamlivegive to help people dream big, live fully and make an impact in the world.

#dreamlivegive is made up of 3 key initiatives:

#1. The #dreamlivegive quest. I sold or donated 99% of the things I used to own and am now traveling the world, shining the light on what it means to dream big, live fully and make an impact in a sustainable way.

I believe that business should be done and life should be lived in a way that is not only good for you, but also good for others and the planet too. That’s why all products sold at The Thriving Collective contribute to philanthropic initiatives and whenever I’m hired to speak, another 5 people in need get access to clean water for life.

You can also combine a speaking engagement or coaching with me, with an unforgettable experience…

Just imagine breaking through something that’s been holding you back for years and then travelling to Switzerland and jumping out of a helicopter from 14,000ft, or sea kayaking with whales in Alaska, or participating in a sea turtle conservation project in Costa Rica.

#2. The #dreamlivegive social campaign has been launched to help unify people around the world to a common cause. It includes the #dreamlivegive hashtag for people like yourself to share how you make a difference in the world, along with a keynote talk presented by me to help create positive change.

It also includes the song and music video, written by me personally called ‘Home’, which is all about dreaming big, living fully and making an impact.

#3. The #dreamlivegive book on how to dream big, live fully and make an impact. Now this won’t be your traditional self help book…

It will definitely include powerful insights on how to achieve your highest potential, but will also include the experiences I have on my epic adventure, along with photos and stories of people like you who use the #dreamlivegive hashtag, allowing you to truly feel like you’re a part of something that’s making a positive impact in this world.



In today’s digital age, we are more connected than at any time in history. But it’s also leaving many of us feeling more disconnected than ever before; from ourselves, from others and from the planet. How we evolve through this period will have a dramatic impact one way or the other on our survival, our happiness and our ability to thrive for many generations to come.

In this talk, we explore how to utilize technology (social media included) in a way that deepens our personal and professional relationships, in a world that is moving faster than ever.

The music used in this talk is a song about Social Isolation & Separation called ‘Our Modern Connection’. Here is a sample of the lyrics:

“We can speed this up one way or another
It could bring us closer to each other or else
It could send us further apart
See it enhances who we already are
I suppose that’s a clue for where we should start
A love for all that we are”
