Hi, I'm Matthew Yao

I'm currently working on:

Ikadami is a global learning platform dedicated to teaching real-world skills and alternative education.

I spend most of my time these days in Perth, Australia building a business while trying to lead an exciting and fulfilling life. This is what my day-to-day looks like:


- Building my business and our team

- Hanging out with family, friends, and my dog Joey

- Dancing bachata & kizomba


On a more global level, here are my priorities:


- Doing great work

- Sleeping 8+ hours a night

- Learning new things

- Travelling, having new experiences, and meeting cool people


I document my journey by making YouTube videos here, posting behind-the-scenes footage of my life on Instagram here, and publishing writing in my newsletter blog.
