I’ve never liked the term Blog, so I’m calling this the Captain’s Log for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the Captain’s Log was used by the first explorers sailing the seven seas to record significant events which is a fitting description of how I feel about my journey and the aim of this page. Secondly, from a nostalgic POV when I retired from the Australian Army I was a Captain. Enjoy!

The Movember Podcast: Man, we need to talk


To mark World Mental Health Day we have released a new season of the Movember Podcast which is dedicated to the real stories about dealing (and sometimes not dealing) with the key transitions a man faces in his life.

In the first episode I talk with director, producer, father, husband, all round great guy Morgan Spurlock @morganspurlocknyc about his journey from struggling artist to the fame that comes with a nomination for the Academy Award, becoming a father, eating McDonalds for 30 days straight, divorce, a new marriage, fatherhood 2.0.

Quotable quote: ‘If you can make someone laugh, you can make someone listen’
