About

I’ve been helping people communicate better since 2000, and have worked with structured content since 2008. At HTC, I led the implementation of SDL Tridion Docs for the User Education team in Global Marketing. I developed the information model, solved publishing and localization challenges, and designed a personalized tips and tutorials app. 

As a consultant, I led the professional services team at Mekon. We helped clients from many verticals get the most out of intelligent content, semantic technology and taxonomy.

I joined SDL in April 2018. It’s great to be working with the Tridion Docs suite again and helping to shape the future of structured content management.

I lived in Taiwan for 12 years, but I’m now back in the UK, living near London with my wife Vivian and my daughters Claire (born 2013), and Elizabeth (born 2014).

Books that I like

Thought-provoking resources on an effective and undersung writing style, and on what “a style” in writing should mean in the first place:
Clear and Simple as the Truth: Writing Classic Prose

Strategy isn’t what most people think it is, according to Richard Rumelt (which raises interesting questions for Content Strategy):
Good Strategy, Bad Strategy

This book on the Semantic Web and Linked Data is useful for anyone in structured content, and it’s surprisingly easy to read:
