An Australian in New York City, passionate about storytelling and making meaningful relationships.
Raeden grew up in Melbourne and lived the last five years in Singapore, Prague and now New York. He values self-cultivation and being the best version of himself, even if it means leaving home for an odyssey around the world. He plays Australian Rules Football and played basketball for his college, competing against teams throughout Asia. He thinks everyone should read Siddharta by Hermann Hesse.

Trent Cotchin, premiership captain of The Richmond Football Club, for revisioning a successful leader as a tireless worker, dedicated to the process but honest with one’s faults.
The patience to meditate and sit still.
Slavoj Zizek, contemporary Slovenian philosopher.
In New York City, you can lead a hundred different lives in a single day, with neither character being any less real than the next.
