About me

By day a mild mannered accountant. By night...asleep until the kids wake me up anyway. Super powers include walking over Lego barefoot AND feeling NO pain! I work full time to bring home the bacon, some of which we eat, most of which we exchange in a barter system for money so we can pay the bills. I do keep some limited amounts of holiday back for exciting blogging related activities though, so do ask.

You can find me all over the interwebs:
Our family started off with the boy who was born back in 1997. He was joined 21 months later by Fifi and finally Ned on new years day 2012. There are five of us now and we have all sorts of adventures and get into lots of scrapes. It's a bit like a really derivative prime time BBC1 sitcom with a bit more rage.

Attention PR types

I'm currently involved in several entertaining blogging initiatives, including The Shell V-Power Network of Champions, Nintendo Family Network, the Karcher Blogger Scheme and The Playmobil Playologist scheme, I'm the only parent blogger involved in the Shell Network of Champions along with TV and Radio presenter James Allen once said I should do my own podcast, when he realised he couldn't get a word in edgeways talking to me.

A while back I was asked to write a piece for the Guardians Comment is Free (CiF) section on going back to work after paternity leave. It provoked some strong responses.

In December 2012 I was interviewed for a piece on pay levels for parents for the Independent on Sunday. You can read that here.

I'm happy in front of a camera too- watch me on BBC's Newswatch here.


In 2012 my innovative use of social media helped me to win a Nissan LEAF electric car in Nissans Big Turn On competition. You can read about it here. I bought the LEAF to a very wide audience, both in print and social media, and actually managed to organically translate interest in the vehicle into votes. I'm clever like that.

In 2013 I won a MacBook Pro for this blog post on my first website. It was the tank top that probably clinched it for me.

I'm more than happy to consider any blogging initiatives you want to discuss with me, don't be shy and drop me a line, contact details are on the right. I have been a top ten Cision Dad blogger since they started the list, and if that's good enough for LEGO, Playmobil, Panasonic, Shell, Nissan and more recently Volvo...
