I am a consultant thinker, merchant & creative strategist with a 25 year track record as an entrepreneur and brand builder. Over the years I have done a great deal of thinking about experiences, brands and people; and what it takes to engage, delight and create desire. I believe, like Robert Louis Stevenson, that "to travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive"; that doing good work is its own reward; and that making other people happy is the surest path to happiness. I live in Bondi very near the beach. My wife Melanie and I start every day with a walk along the promenade and a sauna/swim at the Bondi Icebergs pool.
My family, my brands, my REMOgrams, functionality, Bondi Beach, TriBeCa, Lonelyville FI, fresh seafood, open fires, cooking outside, oceans, islands, films ... but, most of all, passion itself.
Do good work and you will be happy and make others happy.

REMO has been supplying Quality T Shirts and other merchandise to TED Conferences (off and on) since Richard Saul Wurman invited me (and a spare 800 award winning REMO Catalogues) along to TED4 in Kobe in 1993. Over the years I've worked on some fun projects with TED e.g. they recently asked me to explore a TEDCafé brick & mortarconcept, and although they didn't ultimately proceed with the vision as a TED initiative per se, they did encourage me to proceed with it using my own General Thinking network. So, that's what I'm doing :)
