How I Can Help You

I’m here to help foremost. I write mainly for the marketer who has to implement this, usually served up from a very rational/logical executive. So I’m trying to be that conduit that can get that those arrows if you want to take that idea that isn’t in Jira and run with it (I fucking hate Jira).

I believe companies have gone too deep down the Big Data hole and we’ve probably exhausted our big innovative wins we can get out of technology.

The remaining wins lay deep within psychology, perception and incremental influence.

My content focuses on:

  • Advertising
  • Experience design
  • Copywriting
  • Positioning (Strategy)
  • Offers (Promotions)
  • Pricing

Other Projects and Interests

I like to focus on expertise that let’s me live a rich life outside of it.

My Family

Megan, Alfie and Bonnie are my everything.

Football

The round ball type. I love watching EPL. I mostly follow Newcastle United. I played throughout COVID and won the 2023 South Brisbane Over 30s 1st Division Church League.

Reading

I like books and audiobooks. Mostly non-fiction. For fiction, I like the late Robert G. Barrett’s books, he was probably a better butcher than writer. I simply like the entertainment.

Fun Facts

  • I like the carnivore diet but I am really loose with it
