So first an introduction; I’m a dad to three, husband to one, a company founder, a Creative & Experience Partner, an aspiring pianist, and a bit of a geek. I love watching and reading bad sci-fi, eating good food, and generally reading stuff and nonsense online.
I’ve got three amazing kids… It’s incredible watching them grow and learn and play with everything. I’m still learning how to be their dad after 6 years of trying, and to be honest I always will be but they’re fine with that, I think.
Work for me is as the Creative & Experience Partner at the agency Fantastic Thinking, something I started with two others 10 years ago, and sold to The Engine Group in 2011. It used to be an excuse to play football in the sun; it’s now incredibly exciting, challenging, and still an inspiration (most of the time). I’m the one who makes sure we create amazing looking experiences for our clients as well as testing, researching and sharing insights and innovative thoughts and techniques to the rest of the company. More about work here.
I say I’m an aspiring pianist but what I mean to say is it’s something I’m working away at steadily. So I’ve been learning since July ’10, initially just for fun and to satisfy my piano ‘ambitions’, but since Becky (my wife!) promised to buy me a grand piano on the day I pass my @ABRSM Grade 8 exams I’ve taken to the exam route… The next grade I’m due to take will be Grade 4 later this year… Until then I’ll keep plodding along!
