In my words Blog

You don’t really want to be inside, there are too many of us in there at the moment. Any which way,  you will be an Insider. Ain’t life grand!

After some amazing success, LinkedIN decided to interview me and one of my team a couple of days ago. Here is the published version of what was a hilarious chat.

You have all most likely heard of Daniel Easterman. He is the author of at least 10 novels. You might have also heard of Jonathan Aycliffe. He is the author of about 9 or so top selling novels. What you[…]

Sears in an epic product selection fail, they have put up a Swastika punk ring on their website. Their description goes some way to letting you know how odd their buyer and web team really are. Here is how it reads[…]

Thanks VentureBeat. You just pushed the stock of my flock higher. And, yes I know the collective noun of a unicorn is not a flock. It is a blessing. Like c’mon. To be honest though – I think as the[…]

Being as blind as a bat and having a particularly small head, is an affliction I would not wish on anyone. As someone who lives with this problem daily, I can tell you, one of the primary downsides is glasses[…]

Other Stuff

I enjoy taking pictures, drawing and occasionally even turning a phrase. Go figure. To follow is some of my work. I can’t vouch for there being; any artistic depth, standout quality or even an ounce of creativity, alas it is my work. So after such and awesome introduction, I do hope you spend some time reviewing. Let me know what you think.

  • Zombies Take Sydney.


    Sydney was invaded by zombies. I followed them around. What a day. It was a slow march across town - zombies apparently can't walk that fast you see.

  • Sydney @ Night.


    This was my first night shooting in Sydney. I had never worked with a trigger before so this was a steep learning curve. Loads of fun.

  • One Day In Washington.


    I was lucky enough to Visit Washington DC for work. What a place. I hope to get back there some day and spend more time. What a place.

  • Abandoned Factory.


    A friend and I 'snuck' into an abandoned factory. We wanted to see what the local riff raff got up to in there. We had heard all sorts of things about the place. It was eerie and quiet but a photographers dream. I am not a photographer so it was a nightmare - the light changed frequently and there were load of dark patches that just couldnt be lit. But what a day!

  • Supernova ’11.


    I hadn't ever been to a conference of this type before. I was blown away by the effort, thought and awesomeness of the people in attendance. If you get the chance or are curious, get out there and visit one of these days.

  • Can’t Be Categorised.


    Sometimes things just cant fit into one sweet little package. This album is an homage to those things that just don't otherwise fit.
