I have a 20 year background in IT project management within UK social enterprises, having studied information systems and management strategy. I have previously held positions as Technical Director at a specialist ISP helping it to attracted £3m of venture funding during the dotcom boom; IT Manager for a large reproductive healthcare charity; and Team Leader providing IT consultancy to SMEs, NGOs, & the public sector. I also co-created the dot coop top-level Internet domain, and authored a £2.6m funding proposal for an innovative community-lead waste reuse scheme.
I'm working at Events4Change with Gareth, Dana, and Giani on the London part of WorldShift Day. I've been involved one way or another in events since the late 1980’s, starting with the UK's longest running one-day event focused on environmental sustainability (Kingston Green Fair). In 1995 I co-created the first cybercafé at Glastonbury Festival powering all ten terminals entirely from solar energy. Currently I co-manage the UK’s premier conscious clubbing event (Luminopolis) and am also an accomplished photographer specialising in live music (Photographicon).

Kennedy, 2002 (or so I'd like to think... see paragraph 15 for his 1962 original).

A few years ago while listening to an archive recording of one of John F. Kennedy's seminal speeches about the first manned mission to the moon, I mused over what he might have said were he president today. This inspired me to craftily alter just a few of his words:
"We choose to solve the problems of climate change in this decade and curb our environmental footprint, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the…
