It’s a time of great change in my life again.

In short, I’m leaving full-time employment, and going freelance.

There are several reasons for this change, but the primary one is that I’m now in a position whereby this is a feasible option – it’s a model I’ve wanted to embrace for some time. I’ve had numerous requests to take my skills to various projects over the past few months (notably since the Tokyo Marathon, and then TEDxTokyo), and I feel it would be a waste to not embrace the opportunities being presented.

I must say, I’m delighted to be able to take this step, and thank all of those who are making this possible.

I’ll be blogging more about this in due course.

In other news, I’m happy to be running again, managing to get out several times over the past week. The knee that was giving me grief has been behaving itself – just have to take it slow and do adequate stretching.

Finally, I should soon have the footage from my BS-TBS TV appearance, broadcast on May 30th on that network, and subsequently on several other satellite channels. I’ve seen a short section of it, made me laugh! Hope it’ll make you laugh too.

Finally finally, I received an interview request from a weekly magazine last night – I think that’ll be my first appearance in print media in Japan.

I’l be making some changes to my site shortly. The legacy elements of TGW (including the top page) are an embarrassment, and the excuse that I just don’t have time to update it no longer holds water.

Watch this space!
