Quick & Curious

unnamed-6‘Every act of perception, is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination.’ ― Oliver Sacks

I must admit, it’s been a rare old trip so far.

After studying Music, Drama & Dance back in the day, I became a pro musician, marketer and promoter for 15 years. I also wrote TV Jingles, a theatre play, video and film scripts, taught media production at college and worked on some nice projects with the BBC.

A transition happened in ’94 when (thanks to some geeky friends) I produced Europe’s first live music webcast. There were about 2,700 websites in the world back then. I’ve been deep into digital ever since. After studying Business management, Management Information Systems & Video production, I moved to the Netherlands in 2000.

Since then, I’ve worked in film, as an expeditor (problem solver) in international supply chains, a corp comms specialist, marketing and operations director several times, and for the past seven years, I’ve consulted on digital strategy and story. I’ve worked across pretty much the whole of Europe and the Middle East during this time.

If there were a common thread through all this it would be communication. I love figuring out how we articulate ideas and concepts that shape behaviours. And I’m inspired by all sorts of fields including narratology, film theory, cultural theory, captology, and social practice.

As a strategy and story consultant today, my clients range from individuals and startups to agencies and global brands.
