About

I am a digital marketer, product guy, fan of words, husband,  father, politics observer, and former coder living and working in Melbourne, Australia. I have run product teams in enterprises, start-ups, and scale-ups in Melbourne and in Europe.

It goes without saying that this blog is a personal and unrelated to any of the businesses that pay me money.

As a lover of technology I try not to become enamoured with bright shiny things, focusing instead on the stuff which will improve customer experience and deliver a commercial return to the business.

I love helping people and organisations use technology to make their lives better and firmly believe we’re only at the start of a major global shift. I have been the keynote speaker many Small Business events around the world where I talk about how SMB’s can grow their businesses using digital. I have also been the lead instructor in Product Management for the awesome folks at General Assembly.

I love speaking at events so get in touch with me if you want to be entertained and informed.

This is not really my first blog. I had what was called a digital diary in 1999 which I used to publish sarcastic poetry about drinking in bars. For the benefit of the wider community I do not intend that any sarcastic poetry makes it to this blog.

In 2014, in a rage about Tony Abbott’s strange and incompetent brand of conservative politics, I created tonyabbott.fail. Everything was hand coded and the site was archived by the National Library Of Australia which is kind of fun. Later I also created malcolmturnbull.fail.

That is what the Internet is for – fun communication as well as commerce.

Lastly, thanks to Natalie, poet and artist, for being awesome.
