I originally started out as a screenwriter but got side-tracked by the bright lights and big bucks of the marketing world. After decades building brands for some of the world's biggest companies I've returned to my content creation roots.

A career in stockbroking wasn't quite what I had planned since I was horrible at math and pretty good at writing in school. Nonetheless, it paid well and I learned a lot about what makes makes money. Still, numbers are meaningless without words.
A family feel good feature with a stellar cast of talented Australians of all ages. Made in Queensland in 2009, in the middle of a global financial crisis and one of the hottest summers in memory, followed by devastating floods across Queensland, it's kinda miraculous everyone involved survived. It was great fun, great people and I'm proud to have my name on it!
First website built - 1998. Lastest website built - last month. Since venturing into the internet space, I've created countless websites, built a successful hosting company for sites that spruik anything from ice skates to surf lessons.
Content is king and I'm dedicated to helping businesses build online presences that engage their target market.
My passions - not in any order... creating content in all mediums - screen, print, online. There is a medium for everyone, but it must be ambitious and worthwhile.
Call it semi-retirement or just a tree change, since leaving the weirdness of the financial world and escaping to the country, I've dabbled quite a bit in book publishing. This includes my own works and helping many other aspiring writers get themselves into print.
In the 1850s, on the dusty streets of Ballarat in central Victoria, a small group of mining men ran the headquarters of the Australian gold rush. As the diggers hunted for gold, here fortune seekers built an institution at their gathering place known simply as "The Corner". Providing the capital needed to get the gold, The Corner men ushered in a period of extreme entrepreneurship in a high risk game of both mining and speculation. In doing so, they became Australia's first stockbrokers and their institution Australia's first Stock Exchange.
Follow the lives of some of these men and see how they won and lost fortunes, took extraordinary risks and founded practices that are still evident today. From Ballarat to Egerton, Berringa and Daylesford, as rich is the gold heritage of Victoria, so are the stories of those that made it possible.
