About

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.

I have a normal blog, which you can find at Daddacool but this is my video site. You may have guessed that from the layout. And the number of videos.

You can find me all over the interwebs:
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 obviously happy in front of a camera - 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.

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've 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...
