I’m Steven, I’m a recovering awkward turtle 🐢 (quack*) and I love starting and scaling companies.

From billion dollar businesses to those just starting up I love helping people change their lives and the world through marketing.

I’m sharing my journey of growing out of my shell (✋ high five for that pun), starting companies, learning to manage people, starting more companies, and finding my spot in this crazy, crazy world.

I’m currently sharing stories about:

  • How my team and I built a $1M in annual revenue start-up in 6 months and our journey launching a new travel start-up for influencers

  • How I went from a freelancer to building an agency and sharing our journey to become the most kick-ass agency in New Zealand

  • The top personal development things I do to try be the best CEO, start-up founder, boyfriend, friend, and random person walking on the street I can be

Steven is the best!
