I am an author, speaker, and father to six daughters. My mission in life is simple: to increase happiness and wellbeing for parents and professionals - at home, at work, and in life.

The things I share are based on over a decade of research in Positive Psychology - to boost motivation, resilience, happiness, and wellbeing – for individuals, families, and organisations.
