About Me

I’m a writer, entrepreneur, and content creator currently on a mission to build a portfolio of amazing online businesses. 

What I'm working on

  1. 🎛️ I’m the founder of EDMProd, an online educational platform for electronic music producers. I started this when I was 18 (8 years ago), and now spend 1-2 days per week growing the biz alongside my awesome team.
  2. 👨Right now, I’m intensely focused on building my personal brand and audience on YouTube and Twitter—specifically in the solopreneurship/online business niche.
  3. 📨 I write a weekly email newsletter called Modern Capitalist. Every Monday morning, I send out actionable insights and tactics on how to scale yourself and your business.
  4. 🤑 I’m consulting with course creators and coaches to help them get more sales. If you’re interested, hit me up.

Other stuff

  1. 📝 I started my first blog at age 14, wrote 90 articles over the course of 12 months, and made zero dollars. Decided online business was a scam and didn’t pick it up again until a couple years later.
  2. 🎓 I almost went to college/uni to study business. Decided last minute that I’d start a business instead on the assumption that even if I failed, I’d still learn more than if I had got a degree. Best decision I’ve made.
  3. 🇳🇿 I was born and bred in New Zealand (yes, we have electricity). Currently travelling around the world, figuring out where I want to settle for the long term.
  4. 🎥 My main hobby is business. I spend most of my time working because I enjoy it. Outside of this, I like lifting weights, great conversations, and eating incredible steaks. I’m very slowly getting into filmmaking on the side.

Get in touch

  1. 🐦 The best way to contact me is through Twitter—either tweet me publicly or DM. I’m also on Instagram.
  2. 📨 If it’s a longer question, business-related pitch, or something else entirely—feel free to email me ([email protected]). I will not respond to Googleable questions, so don’t ask ’em 🙂
