Everything marketing and writing. Aside from Liam Neeson or Tom Hardy, you will not find someone with a broader skill-set that can be utilised in the most wonderful of ways. Versatility, baby. When I'm not consulting, branding, marketing, loitering on street corners, and appearing in videos I know I’ll regret appearing in later, I'm writing profiles, reviews, travel stories, blog posts, jovial event invitations, and an enormous amount of fiction. I also like to write ad-copy for nice companies whether they want me to or not and I find poor grammar absolutely abhorrent.
