Tell us about your journey! What led you to this point?
I’ve had an interest in philosophy, theology, science, and people from a very young age, and I never saw the division between them all that other people did. Instead, I saw the many overlaps that link them together.
I spent a lot of my free time studying and learning about these different fields and how the connect to one another, so much so that it became a hobby. Due to my dedication and enduring fascination with the topics, it wasn’t long before I began to form my own ideas from everything that I read.
In the meantime, I was self-employed. In fact, I’ve always worked for myself, and in the past tried out a bunch of different ideas to see what would stick. The longest-running enterprise I had was a successful computer business. It started out when my daughter’s school needed help with their systems, and I decided to take on the challenge of sorting the problem myself. For the next 15 years, I worked for plenty of different schools and other organisations and made good money doing it. But, while it became lucrative, it was never my passion. Then, due to budget cuts at many of the eight schools I was working for, my business was forced to close.
