My Values
I'm a business and service designer who is very passionate about using his skills to help establish and develop impact-driven organisations. Our world is driven by companies and governments who have struggled to implement value-driven leadership. The result? Neo-liberalism has been allowed to exploit both our fellow citizens and the planet in the name of growth. I strongly oppose this and have been trying very hard to reintroduce value-driven innovation and mechanisms into the organisations I work with.

My Skills
As a hybrid of business and design, I'm able to work at different levels, whether that is crafting triple bottom line business models, or zooming in to the individual touchpoints of a product or service.

In recent years, I have been trying to build processes to help companies sustainably transform their business models so that they become triple bottom line (people, profit, planet). Doing this from scratch is one thing, but doing it to an existing company requires innovating the entire organisation, from its culture, all the way to the very products, services and value chains.

Born in Australia (I have EU citizenship), I grew up on Sydney Harbour, rigging my little boat up whenever the conditions got wild. I've lived in over seven countries and have over the years picked up a keen love for adventure. I've gone on long treks through places as far north as the Arctic Circle and have climbed mountains all over the world. I'm currently training my ice climbing skills so I can tackle all the elements in a summit attempt! Luckily I live in Norway ;)
