Leadmark Media

In navigation a lead mark is a visible aim point that is used by the navigator to ensure they are maintaining their intended course.

Some time ago, after retiring from the Royal Canadian Navy, I set up Leadmark Media as simple sole proprietorship on the off chance that my love of writing, film and imagery might ever produce revenue. Beyond this Quixotic economic optimism, I have long believed that humanity is badly in need of a change, an alternate paradigm for doing business, for interacting and sharing this amazing planet we call home.

If I plant enough ideas, connect a few interesting people here and there, and lay the foundation of a few key projects with potential to grow and encourage others to follow this example, I can make a constructive difference. One person can change the world. History confirms this over and over again. It’s funny though. People often shrug in the face of big issues like climate change and lament that nothing they do will make a difference and yet so many f us love science fiction that often involves the concept of time travel and the dilemma of a simple little change in the past, like a crushed butterfly, that could change life as we know it today. Go figure . . .

I love the outdoors, year round and live on a lovely little island in the Pacific Northwest. Own a few of sea kayaks and a hybrid bicycle. Enjoy camping but the days of roughing it in a tiny tent on a one inch foam mattress are over.  Did a three month solo road trip from Victoria BC to St. Johns Nfld and back again in 2013 and planning to launch a full solo road tour (this time in an RV) of ALL of Canada – sometime in the next few years.

See you out there.
