About me & my work:

I run an artisanal publishing business based in India creating handbooks for luxury vagbonds. The brand is Love Travel Guides and they celebrate authentic experiences and conscious travel plus contribute back to the community. They are now regarded as the standard bearers for India guides. I also offer concierge and travel planning services and contribute travel stories to the world's leading travel media.

I also work as a futurist, working with organisations to create their best future, innovating products, brands and experiences. I worked in branding and advertising in London, Sydney and New York before becoming the President of BrainReserve, an applied futurism consultancy based in Manhattan. I continue to work with them and consult independently. I frequently give key note addresses at conferences and events about innovation and how to think more creatively.

Occasionally these worlds combine and I present the Future of Travel, or the Future of Travel Writing at Literature Festivals.

However for the most part, I live in these different worlds - of traveling in India and writing about it - creating hand-crafted books and working on assignment for leading media organisations and then every now and then I return to corporate life and wrap my head around how to create the best future for some of the world's largest brands.

I enjoy living between (India's city of the future) and at Hardys Bay, a small hamlet north of Sydney, in a classic 1920's Australian fishing cottage.
