Welcome to my stories
Let’s play with contradictions and paradox
Computers were a novelty at my school and more for show than for students to use. So it wasn’t until the Internet came along and I brought my first computer that the heart of a techie woke from its slumber. I taught myself to code and within a year I was a programmer working contracts in various corporates.
Life’s too big to stick to one passion so I trained as an NLP-psychotherapist too and worked in practice for several years helping people with stress, personal development and deep-rooted trauma.
Then I got into operations and marketing, helping grow three start-ups from zero to multi-million dollar companies.
Then I got into art and discovered a love of portraiture. It’s my new baby and I’m still showing it off — take a look: https://barnabystudio.com and give me a shout if you’d like a portrait :-)
I’ve always been into writing — the one constant. Writing for pleasure and profit. I discovered Medium in 2019 and started writing for the big publications initially, but these days, I mostly write in my own publications:
- Wednesday Genius: An offshoot of my business website, this is about marketing, business operations, writing and ways to get out of the entrepreneurship echo-chamber
- Barnaby Studio: Featuring stories behind my own art, this is for art lovers and people who have an artist’s heart. Affiliate links abound as I share my favourite tools and resources.
- Paradox of Reality: Relationships, phantoms, truth & lies. I think my soul lives here.
Behind the scenes, I’m working on a book of short stories. Supernatural, mystery and suspense. One day, I might even finish it.
