Getting longer in the tooth by the day, I am crazy passionate about digital media and am highly experienced in the end to end digital marketing landscape. Away from ther keyboard I’m your average geeky dad who loves playing with my boy, seeing great (and not so great) movies, going to gigs and festivals, probably re-reading Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy for the billionth time and still laughing. One day I will learn the guitar and have aspirations to shred like Steve Vai or Joe Satriani.
