Becoming the 0.1%

While undertaking the thirty-four weeks of Commando training in 2005/06, at the tender age of twenty years old, he documented his experiences by keeping a never-before captured diary of elite military training.

The brand also specialises in mindset, self-help and smart thinking published literature, while supporting elite human endeavours striving to make a difference to the planet and its inhabitants.
