A typical day in my life includes…  Greek coffee, a 30-lap swim, a big lunch, a cold plunge, writing a to-do list and listening to 80s music!

I was born… to the greatest parents one could ever hope for, in one of the most beautiful cities in the world – Sydney, Australia. I like to attribute my abundant charisma and freakish good looks to being an only child – I didn’t need to share!! While it is usually the firm jawline and steely buttocks that yield the compliments, my intelligence at birth is the true wonder!

My favorite thing about Arizona… in a word, Sedona…buthonorable mentions must go to the sultry female temptresses (what is it in the water?!), the fact that you can stand in four states, and the grilled apache trout, drizzled with freshly squeezed lemonand topped with some cracked pepper)! It also definitely doesn’t hurt that I received a magnificent official commendation from Governor Doug Ducey a couple of years ago, either! It was a great day at the Capitol in Phoenix!

I’m listening to…the sound of my own voice – I’m on the road around 200 days of the year, and have about as many speaking engagements… but I also love the podcasts of Jocko Willink and Joe Rogan. Music is always on in the background – I love almost everything. Sadly, I missed out on the musical lottery of birth (see above!), but I do play the radio really well! 

My family… is everything.As soon as I could, I moved my parents to the USA. Being a child or parent is a lifelong commitment, and that is one area I think American culture could improve. It might be fun to jump in the RV the moment your kid turns 18, and turn off all cellphone communications to rediscover yourself as a couple “Meet The Fockers” style – but the moment you do that, your kid becomes a naked canvas for any college professor or woke classmate. Just wait for Thanksgiving when your once patriotic child is lecturing you on land rights for gay, indigenous whales.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… my hero, my late father.I’d give everything I own for just thirty more seconds with him. I’m a big Sylvester Stallone fan – so he would make the cut. As for attractive ladies, I have an equal opportunity policy (as it only right that I prioritize DEI in such critical matters).

One thing I cannot live without… Astakomakaronada (lobster pasta)… and chocolate… (what can I say… I have a sweet tooth, or four)

When I was younger, I wanted to be… a criminal defense attorney, much like Matthew McConaughey in “A Time To Kill”, tearing people apart in depositions, milking the media, and embarrassing witnesses in a  courtroom stand. Guess I read too much John Grisham…

I’m inspired by… those who validate hard work in the face of impossible obstacles, against all odds, with no experience, relying only on their own self-belief, native instincts and a show up-dominate attitude even when the deck was stacked against them. I love those with who have energy and stamina. The underdogs who prove and remind us that no dream is too big and no obstacle too high.

The one person who motivates me is… my father. I live for him in death, as I lived for him in life. It his legacy I preserve. He was the most brilliant, resilient, and fearless person I knew. I dedicated my national headquarters in his honor, and to remind me why I push relentlessly. 

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… eliminating the corrosive human elements of jealousy and envy. If you see four crabs in a bucket, and one tries to escape, the other three join forces to pull the one with the audacity to try to leave down. It’s also known as the “tall poppy syndrome”. It’s the primary reason I left Australia. Thankfully, it doesn’t exist on a big scale in this country yet (but there are concerning signs!) 

The perfect day would be… a gym session, swim, sauna, steam, cold plunge, Korean scrub, Swedish massage, an amazing seafood meal washed down with bottle of ice cold Retsina, a siesta, and an 80s action movie in my home cinema.Of course, the company of a lovely young lady would be the icing on the cake!

My first job was… as a publicist working corporate PR. Great money, but it was more interesting to watch paint dry. I lasted three months! 

My favorite escape… for a holiday: anywhere in Greece! From everyday life, the sauna, the steam room, the gym, a massage, cold plunge and a movie. 

My life… is the one I always dreamed of. I love what I do. I love what I stand for. I am proud of what I have accomplished. The best part is, I know I can do more, because as an American citizen, I live in the greatest country in the history of the world, and the sky is the limit!

I’m currently working on… a historic men’s conference, the first of its kind, to inspire the next generation of Alpha Males.Dr Jordan Peterson is our keynote speaker, and it is going to be phenomenal!

Always… aspire to greatness. Always disdain mediocrity. Always chart your own course. Don’t be afraid to be the black sheep.Take risks. Tomorrow is not promised.Cemeteries are full of unfulfilled dreams. Always live your life for your eulogy, not your resume. Get after it!

Never… Never stop dreaming; never stop believing. No retreat, no surrender. Never deviate. Never apologize. Never go backwards. Actually one interesting thing about the national Coat of Arms in Australia is that it features the kangaroo and emu. These animals were chosen to symbolize a nation moving forward, based on the fact that neither animal can move backwards easily.  

The day I immigrated in the United States, I did two things – 1) I wrote the following on a sheet of a paper: Inspired By A Dream. Powered By Belief. 

Favorite Quote… “All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother” – Abraham Lincoln

Biggest Dream… Speaking to a stadium at capacity on entrepreneurship, the American Dream, being an alpha male – alongside Tony Robbins, Sylvester Stallone, and Donald Trump. 

My Pet Peeve(s)… gatekeepers, kingmakers, establishment types, and bureaucrats that get in the way of a great man’s ambition or dreams. People should always be in the driver’s seat of their own destiny. They should get to write the script of their own life. Mediocrities should never thwart greats! Lilliputians should never have it over giants!
