“An unexamined life is not worth living” Socrates

In the last 15 years I’ve had amazing experiences as an architect & designer, business owner, strategist & advisor and property investor. During that time I’ve built a business and a brand (tobiaspartners.com) and an investment portfolio and safely navigated them through all sorts of seas to their strong position today. 

I've been mentored and been a mentor, judged awards and been awarded, sat on boards and shared my thoughts.

The last decade has been unquestionably the best part of my life, finding true love, enjoying marriage, the creation of a family home, growing children, exploring the world of young education and traveling even more than before family life started.

For nearly 25 years I’ve been a meditator with a deep passion for and ever-growing knowledge in Eastern philosophies.

I am a ‘waterman’. Water and snow sports provide connections with people and nature, develop strategic skills and a competitive drive, and help keep a sense of perspective, discipline and order in life.

I’ve been a contemporary art collector for nearly 20 years and in the last 5 have had a deep engagement with various art organisations and institutions. 

I’ve had many successes, thankfully not as many failures, a host and challenges and lots of triumphs. As my grandmother always told me - “good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement”. 

So, as I approach 40 years of age I thought I’d create a platform where I can capture and share these many aspects of my life, my experiences past and present, hoping to offer some inspiration, insight, perspective, and maybe a bit of fun to those who might be interested.
