Warrior Ethos grew from a desire to look at the world through a different lens, appreciating the connection between the physical, mental and spiritual for holistic wellbeing. Too much focus on any element can lead to imbalance. Balance improves our quality and enjoyment of life, and life was meant to be lived!
As humans we are constantly learning and striving to become the best version of ourselves. The Warrior Ethos embraces this journey, and creates a space where alternative perspectives and new information can be considered.
We create and provide products to support who want to optimise their mind, body and soul. We are an online ecommerce business, without a retail footprint.
It’s about curiosity, balance, progression and determination. It is not good enough to hope; you are in the driver’s seat of your life. Follow the beat of your own drum and unleash your inner warrior.
The future is uncertain, but the biggest obstacle to success is your mindset. If you are willing, we invite you to join us, focus, make every moment count on your journey to transformation.

A warrior is someone who strives to be the best they can be at all things, who lives life to it’s fullest. It is ancient and core to our humanity, and leading a balanced life. A warrior is a seeker of truth, openness, and connection with the mind, body, heart and spirit.
A warrior is determined, resilient, curious, and a progressive thinker who recognises we are perpetually learning and improving. They value alternative perspectives but are confident in themselves, following the beat of their own drum and life code.
A warrior has the courage to face into uncertainty and challenge. They recognise that every moment counts, and is part of the journey to transformation. They are devoid of ego. A warrior will keep pushing toward their goals when others would give up. They are determined to elevate themselves from mediocrity to greatness.
The Warrior Ethos is a way of life. It defines who we are, what we stand for, and who we aspire to become.

I grew up on an old dairy farm come hippy commune, on the mid north coast of NSW Australia. My family lived completely off the grid, surrounded by rainforest and pristine fresh water untouched by man or impurities.
My parents were nomads with a thirst for adventure, and my childhood was filled with travel and learning about different cultures.. As a boy I travelled through Indonesia and lived in rural PNG where we lived amongst local villagers and learned their way of life. I remember visiting incredible new places exploring islands on a sailboat, which felt like completely different worlds to me at the time. I still have vivid memories of local tribespeople and their children swimming out to our boat and inviting us to feast with them after Ramadan concluded.
I have had a lifelong passion for all things health, wellbeing, spirituality. I also possess a love and affinity for animals, in particular owls, which seem to somehow find me wherever I am in the world. I love sports, and my build and athleticism was naturally suited to Australian Rules Football; in my senior years of high school I left my life in the forest behind, moving to Brisbane to pursue a career in professional AFL. As the year’s progressed I worked for the AFL and transitioned my career into the arboriculture industry, becoming a climber and back full-circle to my love of nature. It was in Brisbane where I met, and married the love of my life; I am still inspired by her every day.
Like so many of us, I became stuck in a rut in my busy life, and felt that work, bills and mortgages were stopping me from unleashing my creative side. A trip to Los Angeles to see a close friend resulted in life-changing experience with ayahuasca. It was during that journey that I realised I had a higher purpose that needed to be explored. It was a profound experience, but still, years would pass before I was ready to take up the calling.
In 2019, and living in Melbourne I was recovering from a bad back injury which left me physically incapacitated, depressed and pessimistic about the future. It was on my quest to recover and get out of the black hole I was living in that I realised that I was my biggest obstacle, and I was the only one holding me back. It was a powerful revelation.
Warrior Ethos is the result of listening to my inner creative side, my quest to be the best version of myself and unleash my inner warrior. I hope Warrior Ethos will inspire others and extend an invitation to you on the journey.
