    Guilia is my son’s tutor, she has been working with him over the past nine months as we have been working to fill some of the gaps and strengthen some of areas of weakness.

    Over the course of our relationship, I have come to realise that children across the community are experiencing challenges, and whilst this may have always been the case I wanted to talk to Guila about the educational system, changes, and the myriad of varying philosophies that can make navigating the process as a parent super difficult.

She has also trained with Ron Yoshimoto in phonology and morphology.

    As Director of The Ranges Learning Centre in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Giulia works with parents navigating the often-overwhelming world of supporting a child with learning differences and advocates for them within the school setting. She performs diagnostic assessments, writes reports to assist parents at home and within schools, and also takes small groups of students.

    He has led four companies as CEO/owner and was a partner/executive in two others as they grew from startup to more than $500 million in annual revenue. A former DJ and radio executive, Bill hosts the Scaling Up Podcast. In his free time, he is an avid surfer, sailor, skateboarder, pilot, scuba enthusiast and recovering triathlete.

    Happily married for more than 20 years, he and his wife Lori live in the Oakland Hills and are parents to two grown children.

    Streets, Schizophrenia, and Success in Tech - Apollo Ellis | EP112

    Streets, Schizophrenia, and Success in Tech - Apollo Ellis | EP112

    Imagine living life with Schizophrenia but having no idea. Today's conversation is with a special guest, my childhood friend Dr. Apollo Ellis. He is known as one of Silicon Valley's top programmers in the tech industry, but the road to get there was incredibly difficult.

    The connection between schizophrenia and drug abuse From addiction, depression and ultimately a diagnosis of Schizophrenia, his story is no short of a miracle, and certainly the outcome of a deep desire to be more in life. Apollo and I had shared in the madness of addiction and the streets as teenagers, we were truly lost in the wilderness.

     We were amongst the worst within our circle of friends. Through the Valley: Streets, Schizophrenia, and Success in Tech Apollo Ellis's journey from the streets of the 1990s San Francisco Bay Area to the heights of Silicon Valley is a tale of extraordinary resilience. Growing up in a world dominated by hip-hop and street culture, he faced daunting circumstances. Narrow escapes from the drug game and gang violence left their marks in the form of PTSD and addiction.

    Homelessness and Schizophrenia Homeless at the age of twenty, Apollo made the pivotal decision to return to school. Choosing education as his lifeline, he began to reconstruct himself. When a diagnosis of acute paranoid schizophrenia threatened his story again, he stayed his course and went on to graduate from UC Berkeley.

    Today, Dr. Apollo Ellis is a renowned expert in computer science and technology. He has earned a Master’s degree and a PhD from the best institutions in the world and worked at many Fortune 500 tech giants like Intel, Apple, Sony PlayStation, and Facebook. 

    In Through the Valley, we accompany him on this journey from the precarious streets, through schizophrenia, to Silicon Valley's pinnacle. It is truly a testament to the power of determination and of an unyielding pursuit of the right to chase one’s dreams.

    What to expect in this episode:
    (00:04:24) - Becoming a meth baller from early teens.
    (00:47:04) - Navigating learning while having Schizophrenia
    (01:21:26) - Insights on how to publicly share your mental health journey.
