My personal story
On January 1st, 2000, I embarked on a journey to change my life and work. I had a great 14 year career in the corporate world but living and working by the conventional definition of success didn’t feel that fulfilling or meaningful to me anymore. So I decided to create my own definition of success, design the next chapter of my life and work around that, and to create and navigate the changes necessary to turn it into reality. In 2001 I left the corporate world to run my own business (a long held dream). I left the UK to live in Ireland for seven years and then moved to Canada in 2013 and eventually became a Canadian Citizen. I now live on an island near Vancouver on the West Coast of Canada. Island life allows me to live and work on my own terms, by my own definition of success. There have been many other personal and professional changes over the years too and I continue to take a design approach to all areas of my life and work for each new chapter.
