Ever had a vision and then brought your dreams into reality?

Christopher Poe AKA Poe is the CEO and co-founder of Habu Health, a Portland (Oregon, USA) based research group committed to building consumer confidence through scientific rigour.

Led by 12 years of research into the neurobiology of pain, and the pain-relieving properties of opioids and cannabis by leading industry pharmacologist and neural scientist, Dr Adie Poe (Poe’s co-founder and wife), Habu Health is a startup created to work with legislators and partners to build digital products that will fuel an intelligent database which integrates high-fidelity plant and human data.

We cover the legalities of recreational use and need for medicinal marijuana globally, the $2M dollars that Dr Adie Poe has already received in US government federal funding, the meaning behind the name of the business (Japanese for “herb”), what motivated Poe and Dr Adie Poe to take the leap of faith to pursue this dream and the launch of the Habu Health App in just 2 weeks!

Fascinating and educating insights into this data-fuelled startup and I have no doubt that you’ll enjoy this entrepreneur podcast as much as I do!

‘Cause legalising cannabis can change the lives and how we manage chronic pain in our global community. This shit is SO much more than Puff Puff Pass!

Byron Bay sunrise. My happy place – Photographic tales of an ex-Emirates flight attendant

Byron Bay sunrise – my happy place. Photo credit: Dan Wilkinson (Hot & Delicious Group).

Sunrise bursts through the clouds.

I’ve just finished an early morning run along the beach and at daybreak it feels like the world is my oyster 

Byron Bay is amazing. A perfect blend of beach, bushland, wicked live music and surf culture. I’ve been there for festivals, with friends on holidays and even flying solo for a mini escape. Whenever I’m there the world feels right and so much so that I even looked for work there once and considered working remotely from the northern beaches of NSW.

If you’re going to lock in 5-10 must-stay places when visiting Australia. This is definitely one you should see.

Take a long early morning walk in the rising light and then chill on the grassy banks next to Byron Bay Surf Club watching the sunrise.

I can tell you, there’s no place you’d rather be.

Escape to LA – Venice Canal District, California – Photographic tales of an ex-Emirates flight attendant

So here I am 12 hours after finding out that my brain scans are clear for another year and I have got another twelve month leave pass.

Grateful, relieved and happy to find out that I’m tumour-free for another year, I’ve spent some time today reassessing where I’m at, where I want to be and what makes me happy – reflection of previous goals I’ve set myself, flashbacks to watershed moments and memories of experiences that have changed my life for ever.

1 such trip was to LA and Texas last year shooting photos and providing social media for a series of international Australian music industry showcases called The Aussie BBQ. I’d returned from the Middle East in 2006, with grand plans (some might say delusional :p ) of being a rockstar living in the USA within 6 months. Flash forward to 2013 and I finally land in LA, not as a rockstar but a photojournalist of questionable technical proficiency, but a keen eye for a the money shot and social media skills to boot.

Upon landing into LAX, Andrew Bongiorno, one of my best mates and an Aussie actor who’s been living in LA for a few years picked me up from the airport and we cruised straight down to Venice Beach for breakfast and a stroll down to Santa Monica Pier. It wasn’t my first adventure to Venice, but this trip was under different circumstances… on my terms… and paid for through my hard work and a tenacious, relentless driving passion to love what I do for a living.

Captured this shot in the Venice Canal District on zero sleep after flying 15 hours across the planet and I can’t describe the happiness I feel as I stumble across this photo amongst a swag of others from my trip to Los Angeles, Austin and Houston last year.

My heart soars knowing what’s possible and following on from the Calling All Cars post 2 weeks back, following your dreams is a way of life and this moment in time has got me thinking about what my next steps are.

I’m floating on the sensations of the delirium and joy that come flooding back as I look at this snapshot of my life and clarify exactly what I want in my mind.

Bangkok checkers – Photographic tales of an ex-Emirates flight attendant

I’ll do almost anything to feel alive… to escape the mundane… 

Every day I mix up even the little things up in my daily routine to keep the spark in me alive; walk a different way to work, decide on what flavours I’m craving that day and use them to fuel my meal choices rather than planning ahead, listen different tunes across a range of genres to clear my head or enhance existing emotions, change-up my fitness workouts and the days I do them on, varied styles of mediation… just several examples of little things I do kind to keep my life & mind fresh.

This also translates to my study & career path. I’ve worked many and varied roles including studying biochemistry at Swinburne University of Technology, working behind the barat Crown Casino, Emirates Airline flight attendant, a Cert IV in small business management, music industry (event operations & logistics/photographer/music supervisor/sponsorship & more), entrepreneurship & innovation at Swinburne Uni again and now social media… I base my choices on what I’m curious about and think I’d be good at and most of all I explore… my emotions, my faults, tastes, sounds, the lives & experiences of the people I know and those I’m fascinated by, the city I live in, the cities I don’t… It’s how I grow, have wonderful new and unexpected experiences… it’s how I feel alive. In short, pretty much my whole life I’ve walked the path less trodden. I like to get off the beaten track.

On my weekends in Melbourne and during the week, I’ll use different streets and alleys to reach my destination, taking in the sights and people around me. Jet-setting the globe with Emirates, I’d often wander around cities full of life and colour with no set plan, purely for the opportunity of what I might stumble across.

It’s quite amazing how many special little moments you experience and the people meet when you’re not so trapped up in the destination and by opening up your mind/soul to do things differently.

I captured this image on one such excursion stumbling around the streets of Bangkok. While I’ve taken more immediately eye-catching photography in my life, it’s amazing how such a simple photo capturing 2 local Thai gents playing checkers with Pepsi & Coke bottle tops can still capture my imagination and make me smile a number of years later. 

Your move 😉
