Who am I?

I’m just a regular guy that loves to play with words with a view to shift perception and do insane things on various platforms.
Getting people to see brands in a different light and appreciate the role they play in our lives keeps me going. That and an insatiable desire to do incredible work.

Note a massage story with a happy ending

Note a massage story with a happy ending

This story starts with aches and pains.

All over.

These can be attributed to tossing and turning through the night, but I don’t know for sure that’s what happened. You see, since I read somewhere (one of those stupid Google results you MUST never open when you’re sick) that it’s safer to sleep on one side over the other because it does things for blood circulation, I’ve tried to stay put when I lie down. It’s friggin’ uncomfortable, but hey… Read more

Brave New World Part 6 | Austin, Texas: Making Meats End

Brave New World Part 6 | Austin, Texas: Making Meats End

“Don’t mess with Texas”. I’m not sure where I heard that, or who said it, but there’s something about the line that just sticks with you. No other state/country/locale invites you in a threatening manner. Heck, even France that would be perfect with the “F” word doesn’t let you in with a “don’t fiddle with France” declaration.

Brave New World Part 5 | Austin, Texas: REUNITED

Brave New World Part 5 | Austin, Texas: REUNITED

Here’s the thing. Ugandans are more willing to look the other way than most people. You can put this down to our friendly demeanor or our desire to make a quick buck… In any case, if it’s the money thing, it kind of makes it easy to smile and drop a hint, “isn’t there ANYTHING I can do to make this go away”. At this point the person on the other end of the conversation will look around and ask you to buy them a soda… or hand you a cream for that pesky STD. Read more

Brave New World Part 03 | NYC – NJ

Brave New World Part 03 | NYC – NJ

You know what’s misleading? Bloody New York City weather in November. As I was approaching the airport exit, the sunlight came streaming through. Naturally, this would suggest warmth, heat, not cold… you get the idea. New York’s weather didn’t. Read more

Brave New World Part 02 | Abu Dhabi – JFK

Brave New World Part 02 | Abu Dhabi – JFK

It’s possible that, up until this point, the biggest airport I’d encountered was OR Thambo  in South Africa. Abu Dhabi wasn’t as straightforward to get around- I put this down to its size. It’s also probable that I’m just crap at finding my way around places, but I will not be the guy that fuels that stereotype. Read more

Brave New World Part 01 | UG – ABU DHABI

Brave New World Part 01 | UG – ABU DHABI

“You sure you still want to come?”. My cousin’s message stared up at me from the cellphone I’d placed next to my suitcase.

As I continued my last minute packing, an angel and devil on shoulder exchange was in full swing. “Dude, you paid twice for a visa. Do you really want to back out now? Oh and let’s not forget the ticket” “Yeah, but is money really more important than life… than family?” Read more

#UGBlogWeek: The Elections

#UGBlogWeek: The Elections

The queue shows no signs of letting up anytime soon and every time they let people into the voting area… they never return. That’s doing nothing for my confidence. Is there a parallel universe beyond that barricade? Does it have a revered lion with Samson’s hair predicament? How about tigers and bears? Oh my… Read more

#UGBlogWeek: The Election Survival Toolkit

#UGBlogWeek: The Election Survival Toolkit

Alright, listen up.

I’m only going to say this once. It’s way too hot and repeating myself will likely take its toll, I will not cave to your “I beg your pardon” and “come again”… no repeat no surrender.

Tomorrow is D-Day, the day we march to the polling stations, dip our fingers in ink with the hope that soiled thumbs move mountains.

#UGBlogWeek: The Haircut

#UGBlogWeek: The Haircut

I got a haircut today. So close to the general elections, it’s easy to think there’s a statement being made, but there really isn’t. I figured I was a tad too hairy for my liking and decided to do something about it. Plus, I really can’t stand it when my moustache tries too hard to socialize with my meals.
