I’m Nic, and I warmly welcome you to my platform where I’ll be sharing my thoughts on a wide range of topics. This blog serves as a space where I can delve into subjects that captivate my mind, from the intricate world of finance and investing to the exhilarating realm of sports and the serenity of spiritual contemplation.

While the majority of my musings will revolve around investing, portfolio construction, and the ever-evolving world of finance, this blog goes beyond numbers and charts. It’s a place where my love for sports and occasional sermon deliveries at my local church may find their way into the narrative. So, don’t be surprised if my passion for Port Adelaide, the LA Rams, or Australian Cricket bubbles over from time to time.

Since 2013, I’ve been immersed in the world of investing, and I’ve come to realize that it’s a lifelong endeavour. What fascinates me the most is deciphering what sets one company apart from its competitors, and the pursuit of understanding what makes a company truly high-quality.

When it comes to expanding my knowledge, I’m an avid consumer of books, podcasts, and long-form articles. However, I often find that the valuable insights I acquire can slip away with the passage of time, lost and undocumented. With this blog, I aim to capture and preserve those ideas, ensuring they contribute to a larger intellectual tapestry.

This platform is a reflection of my thoughts, ideas, and personal experiences. It’s an open invitation for you to join me on this intellectual and, at times, emotional journey. I value your input and encourage you to share your own thoughts, engage in constructive discussions, and respectfully challenge ideas.

Thank you for visiting, and I invite you to stay a while, explore the diverse topics I cover, and become an integral part of this engaging community.
