Words from Athol

I truly value the mechanisms that make up a thing. How simple data can be used to design an extensive mathematical model. How the tiny pieces in my favourite watch synergise. How my kids make our family whole. These are the things that give me joy, and ultimately what I bring to Beaker & Flint; connecting smaller parts to make a big impact.

From a young age, I’ve been interested in the bigger picture, which helps me be compassionate and make good decisions. This has carried over into my career; not just with my analytical decision-making, but also in building connections and being a nurturing leader. I like to make sure my colleagues and clients alike are thriving!
