Welcome and thank you!

To a new supporter, Leslie.

Also, in case I haven’t done so yet, thank you to Julian and Paul-François.

I welcome any input on the site and the direction of the content – which I think is ok – and the marketing, which I suspect needs a concerted social media campaign, a business partner or a marketing budget.

Along with finishing the book, A Ragamuffin’s Tale in October, I have plans to adapt the site to include articles and training on more modern digital forms of storytelling. Including Marketing and Copy; Data Visualisations and Forensic Architecture (reconstructions used in settling Human Rights cases at the the ICC); forms of Digital Activism – primarily environmental – using balloon mounted digital sensors and wifi hotspots (to communicate and overcome firewalls).

It will still retain the existing areas of focus on counterculture and interviews with writers, film makers and musicians, but will hopefully offer insight into cutting edge forms as well. Most of these are from my area of study for a Research Master’s in Digital Arts and Technology at Plymouth University.

I now work primarily as a digital skills trainer, writer, researcher and assessor with organisations like AIM. My career has mostly been as a film editor and sometimes producer in commercials, film and documentaries in the US and the Near East. In music, I've had releases in film and mostly worked as a club music director and contracting producer for a 24-hour music festival. With the surprisingly warm reception of my book 'Ragamuffin's Tale: Growing up in counterculture', my interest is increasingly turning toward writing.
