Meet the team
We couldn’t devise the most intelligent approach to car ownership without a great team.
I have always had a passion for anything with wheels including motorbikes, cars and anything in between. Keeping a healthy work-life balance is important and I do this by spending as much time as possible with my family and friends. When I’m not working, you’ll often find me with my wife enjoying a fun day out or a relaxing day in, occasionally trying to be active on the soccer field.
I can’t deny my passion for cars with real motorsport heritage and credit. Anything that was designed with a racetrack in mind as well as being able to commute around suburban streets gets my attention. I think it’s for this reason that lightweight kart-like cars will always be on my shopping list. Growing up with access to rural hobby farms enabled me to enjoy motorbikes and driving much earlier than my peers could dream of. This had fed my passion to always have a vehicle that is enjoyable to drive whether it’s for a sprint through a twisty country road or stuck in the daily city crawl.
I package two vehicles through my salary – not because we enjoy spending money on cars, because we’re a two-car family – and with a novated lease being the most cost-effective way to own and run the vehicles, it becomes more of a case of “why not?”.
The two vehicles are within our household budget, suitable for our needs and there is great satisfaction in knowing that everything is covered. All we have left to concern ourselves with, is household costs and living expenses.

Driving from Nice in the South of France through Italy, zig zagging our way down the entire country to the very tip of Sicily. A once in a lifetime road trip that will stay with me forever as I recall the winding roads, engineering marvels with bridges and tunnels, beautiful scenery, and amazing cars that would zoom past. We were lucky enough to experience this trip during a European summer where every stop we soaked up the sun, the culture and the surrounding roads.
Starting in Nice we visited Monte Carlo before heading through to Milan. From Milan we toured south from coast to coast visiting places in between like Pisa, Montecatini and Florence before arriving in Rome. After a stay in the Eternal City we headed for Naples followed by the Amalfi Coast. The roads there need to be seen to be believed. How they have buses sharing extremely narrow roads with Vespas and cars is mind boggling, especially when you consider one side of that road is normally a very steep cliff face!
We then made our way to Calabria and stayed there for a few days before heading across the water to Sicily where we drove literally around the island. Some of the best roads were definitely saved for last. The further south we travelled the hotter it became so for me it was the perfect summer and greatest road trip… until the next time!
The team. Everyone will go above and beyond to help someone which is great. You inevitably become a better person and appreciate what working with great people is all about.
