And so it starts....

I suppose I'll start this by writing a bit about myself and why I'm doing this. Not the most original beginning but hopefully I'll make up for that with all that follows. I'd like to think I can keep you both interested and entertained.

I'm a 27 year old Digital Marketing Executive, working in Dublin. I haven't always lived in Dublin and in fact I wasn't even born here. I was born and grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. Both my parents are Irish but I do consider myself South African. I've also had the pleasure of travelling quite a bit and living in a few other places. None of that is particularly important now, and unlike Kurt Vonnegut (a favourite author of mine) I don't think it necessary to tell the reader absolutely everything from the beginning. I think you'll have more fun learning it as you read.

So I guess for now that's all I'll say about myself.

As for what this is all about, well, I like to write and (thanks to work, where I contribute to our company blog) I have also recently discovered that I like to blog. I'm interested in Digital Marketing, new/innovative/emerging technologies, design (both graphic and industrial) and photography. This blog will be about all these things. I'm sure there'll be a few other topics which slip in here and there; music, film, art etc. but all in all it'll be mostly about those things.

This is probably already longer then it should be for a blog so I'll stop. Hopefully if you read this and are interested in reading more, you will.
