“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Never-ending challenge is the secret to a successful and satisfying life. My Grandmother has been consistently quoting Tennyson's Ulysses to me since I was a child - it's one of my greatest inspirations.

How dull it is to pause, to make an end,
To rust unburnish'd, not to shine in use! ...
Come, my friends. 'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

I intend to make these verses my life mantra and always be ready, willing, and able to accept new challenges both in my professional and personal life. Tennyson's Ulysses again captures it best when he exhorts us "To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield."

My objective is to stay true to involving myself in the areas and issues that I am truly passionate about. Specifically, I want to help make Australia stronger through focusing our nation on developing industries and companies that possess global competitive advantage. Above all though, I intend to invest earnestly in family and friendships; laugh a lot and enjoy life to its fullest - it's way too short.
