Nippin has a Masters degree in Economics, a PhD in Social Sciences and a fascination in Cultural Anthropology. Working as a seafarer and travelling the world from the age of seventeen gave Nippin the unique opportunity to meet people who think differently. This experience has informed much of his work to date, encouraging him to find deeper meaning, as well as learn and grow through every challenge he undertakes.
Throughout his career as a ship captain and safety inspector, Nippin has been intrigued by the paradox between scarcity and abundance. He states, "Whilst scarcity brings out the best in human intelligence, an abundance of talent goes to waste when people don't feel recognised at work".
