I am also Director and songwriter for Cappel Songwriting .
I am a founder member of Imersia. We are involved in a wide variety of areas around mobile devices, including location based services, proximity based marketing, Augmented Reality, M2M, gamification and wayfinding, such as indoor and outdoor navigation.
I wrote and published Unleashing the Road Warrior and have written for many magazines and publications as well as technology white papers.
Paying it forward: I have over the years held positions including President of the NZ Wireless Forum, Vice President of the NZ Sales & Marketing Institute, President of the Glenfield Music Centre, President of Auckland Landyacht Club and ran my own businesses including Mission Control (A wireless computing consultancy) and the NZ Smartphone & PDA Academy.
I have chaired and spoken at ITC industry conferences from Paris to Johannesburg to Auckland New Zealand and many more.
I’m exploring things like location based proximity marketing, location based applications, game mechanics and pretty much anything that takes my fancy. I enjoy writing and have an opinion on most things:)
You will find my songs on lots of websites, mostly for free, so get in quick before I am famous and they cost much more. If you are an artist looking for a song, give me a yell. I had a podcast called A Kiwi Songwriter (now suffering from podfade) and an infrequent blog about Songwriting. You will also find me on Twitter and LinkedIn. I have also recently set up to Scoop.it pages The Song Writer and Location is Everywhere.
I love engaging with people, so please feel free to leave comments or ask questions. Need a hand with your blogging or other aspect of your business. Try me. If I can’t help, one of my associates probably can. I’m pretty well connected:)
