How to be a curious optimist and survive in business

How to be a curious optimist and survive in business

Just yesterday, I decided to cancel a project I have been evaluating for a few months because I realised it had a serious strategic flaw, and that is great news! In business I always like to start any interaction from a place of optimistic curiosity. This means I tend to want to accept as many opportunities as possible, but there is a point at...

Staying connected while working remotely

Staying connected while working remotely

We often think about organisations as a faceless emotionless monolith, but in reality, an organisation is simply a collection of individuals working toward a common goal. Now if your organisation is going to accomplish that goal, then you must treat your people with intentionality and care.We are fully remote team, and it’s vitally important to...

I don’t want to use cash, just the right to

I don’t want to use cash, just the right to

I am not an alarmist and usually abhor sharing petitions, but as someone who loves both technology and history I feel this is one I am in a position to share. This petition is asking the government to preserve physical cash in law. Seems weird, I know. Hear me out... I'm fascinated by crypto and I think it has some excellent, potentially...

Thinking about death

Thinking about death

I'm not depressed, it is just that for my whole life I have regularly considered what it will be like to experience advanced age and ultimately death. I know that sounds morbid, but it never was, It was more like the idea of "Memento mori" espoused by Socrates. The idea that remembering that we will eventually die should motivate us to make the...

Local Church Social Media Primer

Local Church Social Media Primer

I was asked to give a 20 minute talk on Social Media at my local church, 20 minutes was not nearly enough and I was talking to a mostly non-tech-savvy audience so I did break down the definitions a lot, but I thought I would share it in case anyone would be interested in the content or want to make it your own and share something similar at your...

For my Dad

For my Dad

I’ve always struggled with gifts for people. I know a good gift idea when I spot it, but coming up with it is really hard. I have heartily appreciated every gift I have been given, but ultimately gifts aren't the thing that floats my boat. It is knowing that the person who gave it loves and respects me. So this year, rather than giving a gift...

Mashona Music Video

Mashona Music Video

I am certainly not a videographer, but when Alan came to me and asked me to shoot a music video for him, I was quite surprised and certainly challenged, but I said yes. I listened to the song and based on the lyrics, built out a narrative concept and went hunting for locations, props, vehicles etc. We shot the video in two sessions and I had the...

14 Lessons from 10 years As a Christian

14 Lessons from 10 years As a Christian

Almost a year ago I had the idea to create a video to mark ten years since my baptism, but kept putting it off because I had such big plans for it, yesterday I realized that if I want to get it out before 11 years clicks over, I need to stop aiming for perfection and in the famous words of Nike- Just Do itNiké So I did - and today is launch day!...

Resource: Nominating Survey

Resource: Nominating Survey

Around this time of year most Adventist churches are going through the wonderful process we affectionately call Nominating committee, where the officers for the upcoming year are selected. In order to facilitate that, we developed a survey that can be used in advance of the process to give the committee some data to work with. Today...

My Talk at the CBO Breakfast

My Talk at the CBO Breakfast

Here in Bundaberg there is a Christian Business breakfast that I have really enjoyed attending several times. Recently David (the organiser of the event) asked me to give a talk at the upcoming breakfast about how my faith effects my business. He was also kind enough to supply a recording of it afterward which I now want to share with...

Projects

I have been in the web industry for over 15 years solving business problems using online technologies.

Blue vineyard is an ecosystem of ministry focussed businesses that helps Adventist organisations shape for digital growth.

Aus Table Talk is a podcast I run with four of my closest friends where we have a laugh but also go deep on our christian experience.

We like to say “We have the conversations you wish you could have at church”.

This is the only project I have that is just for me. I love creating video and telling stories about my journey to reboot my own life. Physically, mentally and financially.

Part creative outlet, part life documentation I would love to have you join me.
