This is where I write about the things that matter most to me. I believe passionately in actively looking to create a better, more human world. One of the ways that happens is when people discover how to live life fully alive. When we discover who we are, the talents we have, and then maximise that for the good of humanity, we open the doors to a much better world.
Helping people discover their potential and then unlocking that is what the primary writing at this site is all about. Focussing on human potential, creativity, leadership, and spirituality, the articles here are designed to help people tap into the most relevant question of our age: what does it mean to be human? These articles are all part of the Awaken blog.
As well as these articles, you'll also find a a separate Tech Blog with a smattering of opinionated articles, usually focussed on Apple products and services. Sometimes I'll aim to connect the dots between technology and the future of humanity, but mainly I'm just an Apple geek who enjoys a good tech rant now and then! :-)
In addition to the above, I also have one further blog called iSermon where I post regular written and video messages that are typically an exploration of one or more passages from the Bible. These usually coincide with material we're discussing at Mosaic (see more below), though I sometimes post other content too.
Further to the Tech Blog and iSermon sub-blogs that are also part of this site, I also curate and share links (usually with a short comment or observation) to interesting articles and news stories that I'm reading. In this section of the site, if you click on the title of the post, it will take you straight to the original article.
Finally, I have one last catch all blog. This collection of blog posts is on no particular subject. It might be family stuff, thoughts on a movie, or a rant about Arsenal or Leicester Tigers. Anything really. If it doesn't fit within the scope of my other writing, this is where it'll go. I'll also post any site-related news here too.
Who Am I And What Do I Do?
I live in Sheffield, England with my wife, Rachel, and my two daughters, Eloise and Imogen. I work as a web design and content administrator for a company called Tribal. As well as this I help lead and oversee Mosaic, an innovative and pioneering community of followers of Jesus Christ. I'm also the founder and creative director of Vox Sheffield, a non-profit organisation that champions creativity, community, and good causes. Additionally, I serve as a senior field operative for the IMN, a unique mix of creatives, thinkers, and practitioners offering a dynamic blend of cyber-seminary, idea studio, and life and mission mentoring.
