I like to create opportunities and as a result have started or been involved in plenty of projects, hobbies and businesses, here are some notes and clips from a few of the things I have loved in the last few years.
Grassroots Internet Strategy

A great Australian charity that are doing great things! The concept is simple, every person in Australia gives one hour of their salary every year, and this supports a number of great children’s projects that are either struggling or who do not have the means to fundraise at this level. We had our first event in June 2011 and there is plenty more where that came from! http://www.childrenspromise.org/
My coaching business is slowly coming to an end, due to my retirement and extensive travel plans. I still take on the odd client if I love what they are doing, but it is not a focus anymore. I do love business coaching however and this will always have a soft place in my heart!
The Live Peep Show
A radio show on Bondi FM which I co-host with Johnny B. I have been doing the show since 2008 and it really is one of the highlights of my week. We get to interview some really interesting and talented people and of course, play all our favourite music.

The LoveJam Festival
A music festival created to promote tolerance and racial harmony; we organised it in 2006 & 2007. More recently a crew have with our blessing started the LoveJam festival again with plans to hold it twice a year. I am really looking forward to seeing it be a mainstay in the Bondi calendar. For upcoming events check them out on Facebook.
Trailers from 2006
A men’s T-shirt label focused on music, fashion and making a difference. This business specialised in designer T-shirts coupled with albums of up and coming artists. We also created the first Bondi Winter Festival with the council which included a week of music and events in the streets on Bondi. This is now an annual 2 week event.
The Holy Cow Project
A fundraising effort to support the work of the East West Foundation who run a children’s home and medical centre in Southern India. Here is a gorgeous video created for the project including the kids from the home.

The Full of Beans Project
My first dabble in community projects; I arranged for disadvantaged youth to enjoy a day of adventures with their families including indoor rock climbing, go karting and ice skating. Save The Children chose families who would benefit and they spent a day sharing activities and meals provided by local businesses.
