I’m a compulsive adopter of new technologies and love to write about them. My business partner thinks my writing is too technical for creative businesses…
That’s why I’ve started Digital Skin.
Did I mention I’m a lifelong fan of Leeds United? My first match at Elland Road was in 1969 vs. Liverpool. It’s been a long and occasionally rocky road, but in Bielsa I trust!
