I straddle the worlds of creativity and technology.
I've founded several companies, most recently Draco Felis (with my lovely wife, Anna), GC Digitype, an e-book company, Hukilau, a digital publishing company and Moviestorm, a virtual movie studio.
I'm also an unashamed film buff, voracious reader, music lover, and foodie.
I love the results you can get from messing around with consumer-grade digital cameras. This is one of the hotels we stayed in last week, shot at night, without flash, just balancing the camera on a wall.
Strange, eerie, and captivating. The landlord offered to sell me the hotel. I'm tempted, I really am.
I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to develop their talents. Many of the most creative people I've met have struggled to find an audience, not because their work isn't good enough, but because they haven't been able to afford the tools to work with or have been battling against corporate sales-driven media companies. With the advent of the Internet and new creative tools, more and more of those people are getting the chance to show us all what they can do, to find new audiences, and to contribute to our shared culture. I like to feel I'm doing my bit to help.
