TLDR; Stuart is co-founder of an SaaS app called Gleam, he’s previously worked for startups in Melbourne including Hitwise (which was acquired by Experian).


I’m an entrepreneur based in Melbourne, Australia. I’m 33, and I enjoy electronic music, marketing, growing businesses and my family. I’ve been in the digital marketing game for the last 12 years.

I’ve been working with my co-founder John on various projects and ideas since 2009. Gleam is actually the 6th app we’ve built.

There is no such thing as an overnight success. Anyone that tries to tell you otherwise just wants your money


You can find me lurking around on a few social networks (if you want to follow me):

Twitter – You may wonder where the handle comes from, more on that below.
Soundcloud – I used to write techno music in my spare time (but have little time for it now)
Instagram – I post semi irregularly, mostly family stuff
Linkedin – If you want to connect for Business reasons
Facebook – Don’t use Facebook much, but do participate in a few good groups.

Why @thegyppo?

Well, I’m originally from Belfast in Northern Ireland. When I moved to Melbourne, people used to joke about a certain scene in the movie Snatch (due to my strong Irish accent).

I ended up getting called Gyppo by a lot of my close friends, and hence why you see it in some of my social handles 🙂
