A TV ad for one of my launches! Old-media ads have so much more cachet.

+Craig Richards​ - no new music for the kids! This confirms my middle aged dad suspicions. Kids of today don't know what they're missing ;-)

New figures show that almost half Britain's nightclubs have closed in the last decade. Have we lost interest in dancing, are they too expensive or is there something else going on? Two DJs explain all to Radhika Sanghani

Yesterday, our team launched tab technology on mobile :-P  http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2015/07/23/youtube-updates-mobile-app/30598505/ Oh, and vertical videos.

The thing I'm proudest about, was something no one's noticed: renaming the home page from "what to watch" to simply "home" on all devices to match mobile. It's a small thing, but man, it's such an improvement :-)
ANAHEIM, Calif. — YouTube is on a roll, with more viewers, time spent viewing, and videos being uploaded to the world’s No. 1 video site.

My first effort with Google Photos movie creation. Not much in the way of creative options, but a pretty decent default effort nonetheless.

Story
Tagline
Product Manager at Google & YouTube. Keen skier, sailor, artist, procrastinator. Newly minted dad.
Introduction
Originally hailing from fabulous Chadvegas, Essex, UK. Now scratching an existence in San Francisco, California. In-between times you might have been unfortunate enough to meet me in Manchester (1989-1993), Belfast (1993-94), London (1994-2002), New York (2000), or Denver (2002-04).

Have already filled my lifetime ambition: I learned to ski deep powder (thank you fat skis). It's metaphorically and literally all downhill from here.
Bragging rights
Shook Paul Weller's hand. Was inside the reality distortion field when the iPhone was unveiled. Once had to apologise to all the women (bar one) at a startup. Named after my Uncle Tom, who was a stuntman.

Great new place. Immediately one of the best restaurants in Truckee. Steaks are excellent.

The best cafe in Bernal Heights, by a country mile. Great food, relaxed atmosphere and (almost) all the staff are awesome and welcoming. Great for families, lunch, or a quick coffee and pastry. Even good for an informal dinner - esp the pizza!

The food at Hillside is superb - as good as any restaurant in nearby Mission, and much better value. The decor is basic, but charming. Staff are friendly and attentive. But the food is awesome! Check it out while it's still relatively undiscovered.
