my story

A little about myself

A little about myself

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by human development and have been on a quest to answer two key questions: "What makes for a successful life?" and "What makes people change?"

I thought I had all the answers as I spent two decades of my life traveling the world and rapidly gaining "success" and recognition across various business, creative, and spiritual spaces. Little did I know that I was slowly breaking apart inside and losing myself to unhealthy coping mechanisms and addictions, particularly workaholism and pornography. 


When I was finally able to confront the unhealthy signs in my life, I discovered that my view of success had been severely narrow, and a new approach was required.


After a multi-year, multi-layered, transformational change that started with confronting my unhealthy coping mechanisms, I learned a totally different way of living. A life that includes intentional commitments, redefined whole-of-life success metrics, self-care and self-discovery without self-indulgence, a matching of my inward reality with my outward reality, and a thoughtful and purposeful relationship with the world around me.


Having had the opportunity to “life-test” these postures and tools, I decided to start LiveHolystic Coaching, to commit myself to supporting others in their own journeys of transformation. My mission is to help people redefine what a truly successful life looks like and guide them towards an alternate, more holistic approach to living.


Drawing from my extensive experiences as a coach, consultant, and advisor to individuals, teams, and organizations across various spheres and contexts, I assist individuals in stepping off the familiar "treadmill of life" and embracing a new vision of flourishing, adventure, and impact. Together, we will unlock your potential and create a life that is rich with meaning, purpose, and positive influence.

behind the name

WHY "LIVEHOLYSTIC"?

WHY "LIVEHOLYSTIC"?

Throughout my life, I have been pulled in what has felt like two distinct directions. On one side, the desire to bring things together, to integrate, to find a holistic approach to life. On the other, pressure to be set apart, to be true to myself, my values, and to what has sometimes felt like divine calling — to be holy. 


What did it mean to “be myself” in vastly different contexts — church, work, family, relationships, cultures — and in situations where being true to myself meant swimming against the tide? How could I then bring these “different” selves together into an integrated whole? How could I contribute well to the flourishing of others and of communities, while holding true to my uniqueness?


“Live holystic” is a term I coined to describe my discovery that the holistic and the holy can, and I think should, be held together, that being integrated and set apart are necessary to being fully human. I hope you will join me in exploring and experiencing this holystic path to a transformed life.

Experiences & HIGHLIGHTS

My journey

My journey

Some higlights on my journey that have shaped me include:

  • Feeling caught between belonging and not belonging (including experiences of racism), growing up in Sydney, Australia, as the son of Malaysian-Chinese migrants

  • Finding faith in God at the age of 16 — a “spiritual awakening” from a non-religious upbringing

  • Navigating the good, bad and ugly of corporate-life for two decades and learning hard lessons about leadership and life

  • Winning a top Australian bank's “Shark Tank” and going on to pioneer and launch a digital inventory app and startup business in New Zealand

  • As a volunteer working with youth, witnessing their creative energy and ability to overcome mistakes

  • Learning the values and practices of a diversity of cultures through living with different people groups, e.g. remote communities in Australia and Kenya and a community in a typhoon-stricken region of the Philippines

  • Composing, recording and releasing original songs that have been played from pubs to to radio to stadiums, both locally and internationally - all while experiencing extreme bouts of imposter syndrome

  • Surviving 5 days in the blistering Australian outback with an ex-SAS soldier with nothing but a 20kg backpack of gear
