A lean enthusiast and an aspiring minimalist, I started this blog in 2017 to share some of the things I’ve learned along the way as well as new things I learn and experience from my continuing journey towards a simpler life. I hope you find some value in the posts here. I write about minimalism, intentional living, personal growth and about the benefits and process involved in a lean transformation. In my personal life I am also a poet, a musician and an aspiring martial artist.

Check out my Facebook page: @theleanminimalist or follow me on Twitter @leanminimalist where I share some of my own writing as well as posts and tweets I find inspiring.

For those on the lean journey who are interested in where I work, I am part of the team at Escea Ltd, a manufacturer of beautiful and efficient gas and wood fires www.escea.com. At Escea we believe that waste is wrong and everything we do is for our customers. We use that philosophy to continuously pursue a goal of constantly reducing non value adding activities to better produce the highest quality, best designed products for our customers. My role at Escea is Chief Operating Officer where I oversee all manufacturing, supply chain and distribution functions as well as acting as the company’s Lean Coach and manager for HR, H&S and some business administration.

The pursuit of perfection in systems and processes has been the key theme of my career for twenty plus years. These days I do my best to achieve this as simply as possible.
