Devotee of the Sydney (Australia) startup & innovation scene, especially supporting efforts to network members of this ecosystem on the North Shore.

The business card I hand out is Chairman of Squirrel Street, but I am also passionate about family office issues (family dynamics, philanthropy and the move by younger generations into higher risk assets). Aside from putting my money where my mouth is with some direct investments in Sydney startups and Sydney-based VC, I also invest in Israel and support efforts to engender closer ties between the tech (investment) communities of AU & IL.

Early career as an Engineer in telecommunications, diversifying via an MBA into a variety of roles: HR + M&A roles at Telstra, original family representative in corporate sale of family business, running a co-working space and now involved in all things Cloud (Accounting).
