What I Do
Leisure & Lifestyle
Music & Hi-Fi
I’m a teenager of the 80’s and my music taste hasn’t really shifted since then. I’m a lover of the retro hi-fi from that era and vinyl is my medium of choice.
I’m lucky enough to ‘live the dream’ as my daughter tells me. I have a lot of time for my own personal projects, and I just love to travel. My plan when I started this blog was at least four holidays a year. Now living in SE Asia its far more. I’ve seen quite a bit of the world through both leisure and business.
I’m an avid reader, mostly in the business, lifestyle and self-help sections, a lot of which is done on the kindle, but I can’t help browsing through the shelves of second-hand and charity shops.
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m often asked, “What do you do ?” and given I do many things, people really do find my answer somewhat baffling. I’m passionate about many things, ranging from giving my clients value for money, and helping them solve their problems, to spending my time creatively writing and taking photographs. I like to get business ideas launched and see people and organisations succeed. I like good design, and wonderful service. I’m a believer in taking the old and turning it into new, and I’m really not good with material things, tending more toward the value in experiences. I like travel, and meeting interesting and engaging people.
I help some well known companies deliver on their strategy, generally through managing their business cases, programmes and projects. My specialities are Management and Technology. I have a knack for understanding problems, framing them in a way that’s easy to understand, and using the available resources to resolve them. I’ve really enjoyed working with my clients, and from what they say, the feeling was mutual.

Web Design and WordPress Support
I run a business helping clients build and support their websites. We help commercial and NGO clients build simple focused websites that convert visitors to customers.. We help support those with WordPress websites and help them get the most out of the platform, so they can focus on their business. Take a look at Digital Rain for WordPress Development and SEO.
I’m the author of the Minimalist Blog, Two Less Things, where my views on consumerism and stuff have featured in magazines, radio, and the web.
Coaching and Mentoring
I help businesses and individuals identify their strengths, understand their goals, and find the resources they need to fulfil their personal and business aspirations. I offer free introductory sessions, working with people from all walks of life, and get a real sense of gratification when people take on board the frameworks we discuss and use them to succeed. Contact me for more details.
I would have to describe you as ‘Professional Mavericks’ – a very refreshing approach indeed.
Credit where credit is due, we would be in a right old sticky mess of brown stuff, if you weren’t here. It has been great working with you.
