I have a natural drive to achieve and exceed beyond what most can see. I have an entrepreneurial spirit and have started various companies; most notable, Super Goodwin Games and Coachnite.

You may have heard of the ‘Flow’ of life. A concept where people get lost in the moment and everything else seems to fade away. That is because, in that moment, you feel you are doing something greater than you; effortlessly following a passion.
