A library of content I've curated over the years. There's a strong action bias to the content I curate, and it is quite skewed to startup-centric themes. This library is a tad dated, but mostly everything selected should be relevant regardless of timestamp. Has over 500 articles / links in it. Enjoy.

What can D2C companies do, during lockdown?
I'm a currently inactive, erstwhile active photographer. I've held a few exhibitions of my work over the years, and have also sold a few prints. Check out some of my work.
If you want to use any image, or would like a print of one for your living room, give me a shout.
The artist in me has been asleep too long - I would love some cheering on in the hope I get back to using that stupidly expensive gear I've collected.
