Hey! Firstly thanks for taking the time to visit my little place on the interwebs.

Here you will find a combination of all of the things that interest me spanning, entrepreneurship, technology, culture, education and marketing.

Firstly I want credit David Perell for the inspiration behind this Start Here page. David talks about this in his Ultimate Guide To Writing Online which struck a chord and made me rethink how I structured my site.

Now on to the intro.

Quick Bio

Currently I have a digital agency called The Growth People where I help people do digital things plus a couple of side projects like Tech Jobs Manchester and The Saddleworth App.

I'm a dad to three wonderful girls and am engaged to my partner Natalie.

My thoughts are mainly made up of the future of technology, the shifting world of work, digital education, ultra running and philosophy.

Born in Bristol, now live in Saddleworth.

Left school at 16, learned by doing.

To give you an idea of where I get my info, here is a list of some of the things I find interesting.

"The five most important skills are reading, writing, arithmetic, persuasion, and programming. If you’re good with computers, if you’re good at basic math, if you’re good at writing, if you’re good at speaking, and if you like to read, you’re set for life." - Naval Ravikant
