Introduction

I've been traversing the creative industries since the late 80s. My travels have taken me through the worlds of advertising, online marketing, web development, filmmaking, media production and entrepreneurship. Having previously co-founded two start-ups between 2001 and 2005, in 2009 I created the first concepts for EARTH 2.0® and founded Velatropa Films to produce engaging documentaries and interactive media. In 2010 I produced and directed the short film series Earth 2.0: Initialization that marked the beginning of this ambitious undertaking and also serves to convey the innovative look and feel of Earth 2.0’s media output. In 2011 I co-founded Earth 2 Hub™ which brings together leading-edge international creatives, scientists, technologists and futurists to explore how new science, new technology and new thinking could positively impact on the future. I am also the Co-founder/CCO of DMT LAB™, a London based creative agency.

The devastating earthquake that struck Nepal in April only released a fraction of the energy still trapped in the underlying fault, meaning the area has the potential to host another possibly more powerful earthquake.
