About

I help early-stage ventures get up and running. Over the last 15 years I have been a founder, adviser and product lead for a range of startups. Lately I’ve been exploring communities of practice, social vs individual impact, and the future of work in a post-pandemic world.

I’ve lived and worked in several countries and am very happy to be back home in sun-drenched Australia (living between an escarpment and the ocean) with my beautiful wife Meg and our mad dogs Ziggy, Lucy and Ralph, and a fair few chooks.

Work

I currently work as a Venture Architect / Advisor with Josephmark.

Josephmark was established in 2004, when the term ‘venture studio’ simply meant that we had a lot of explaining to do. Soon enough – and with a lot of effort, skill, and love – Josephmark and the venture studio model grew in kind. Now, we span two continents and 50+ team members, with decades of experience creating, designing, growing, and connecting world-class brands and businesses..
