who I am

I’m a 32 year old from London, England. I’m a writer now working as a content strategist for a digital consultancy. I graduated from Nottingham University Business school in 2005, before going on to do a Master’s degree.

Online communities have been a big part of my life since the year 2000 when I first got my hands on a 56k modem and an AOL disc. Started with chat rooms and forums all the way through to wikis, podcasts and social media. I’ve always loved how the Internet opened up opportunities to connect with like-minded people you otherwise never would have met.

I started this site to practice my wordpress skills and push all the other Joe Towners off the top of the Google rankings, some of them are weird.
