We all have a story behind what and why we do our work.

If you want a little more detail…

Committed to lifelong learning and personal development from the tender age of 12, Al has been on a mission to bring about a world that is ‘together in gift.’ A world that is designed to cultivate and allow community and human potential.

At 12 years old Al was sitting on the couch watching Jumanji with his older brother when a World Vision ad came up asking him to ‘sponsor and child.’ This brought Al to questioning why this was necessary. How are we at a place where we need to sponsor children? With these questions streaming through his mind, he started wondering how he could be of greatest service. This is when he started his first small business mowing lawns.

It has been a little journey since mowing lawns, running an online clothing store, managing talent and music events, producing a global event series and having the time to finish High School also. Al is now the founder of Realise Flow, a media platform and facilitation organisation for social-pioneers, truth-seekers and peak-performers bringing ‘community’ back to personal growth and exploring human performance; and Base Commons, on a mission to facilitate curated experiences and regenerative co-living spaces to allow personal growth, connection, expression and social innovation.

Selected as one of ten young entrepreneurs globally to attend a social entrepreneur acceleration program in Boulder, Colorado in 2014, Al gave his first TEDx talk at Mile High which is known to be featured in business schools Australia-wide. He regularly works with executives, leadership, entrepreneurs and creatives wishing to amplify their impact or team performance through coaching or personal guidance.

If Al isn’t travelling to speak, facilitate or work with his team, you might find him hiking in a lush forest, writing his next book, practicing yoga, playing guitar or sitting in stillness.

Al is constantly expanding his toolkit of skills to facilitate personal transformation and transformation for teams:
